Grammar checking is a very desirable feature to provide in the GNU
system.  To provide this feature in the GNU system means that the
system includes free programs that do the job.

These programs don't have to be part of Emacs.  They don't have to be
GNU packages -- it's fine if they are developed and released by
others.  The requisites are: they have to be free/libre, and they have
to be easy install and run on your own computer so that they work with
Emacs without requiring any network connection.

They should not push people into dependence on servers run by others
for a task which doesn't inherently involve someone else.  That
conflicts with the deepest form of our goal: for users to have control
of their computing.

If some existing free software comes close to doing this, that's
great.  If it doesn't quite get all the way there, would people like
to work on bringing it the rest of the way?
