​What I wonder is why Speck is not so popular, it seems not so many people
use it or even know about it.  What do others use for spell checking?
Flyspell?  Personally, I have to admit that my experiences with Flyspell
are terrible as it is extremely slow and continuously stutters Emacs.  Even
`flyspell-lazy' does not help.  On the other hand, Speck seems to be
working truly (or almost truly) asynchronously and therefore I experience
no stutters or slowdowns.

By the way, do you have any recipe to teach Speck to spell check only text
in TeX files (i.e. skip commands)?
