I thought that too at first. But that would only work in the file browser.
Eventually, some other contexts will use .talk clips. What if you want
something spelled in the bookmark selection menu, playlist catalog or
viewer... You won't want a spell button in each possible context. So an
override for the settings seems best. In my prototype I implemented it in
the same way as the talk_menu_disable feature they use from recording, so
that the override is forgotten on reboot.

Well I can reuse the hook that leads you to the quickscreen, but not the
quickscreen function itself. I'd need to modify key bindings a bit too.
But we'll see where the general discussion about the quickscreen leads.

:-) Certainly. Don't hold your breath, those are going to take a while.

I am getting them. You seem to have more spare time than I do :-). I was
out of town this weekend.
