in reply to Monastery tag -- dict://word

I rather the dict:// tag automatically correct spelling for me, as opposed to giving a link to a definition...

as in, [dict://speling] would be replaced with the first word giving from the list of possible words from the dict site (chosen on your homepage?) and returns it, unbeknownst to anyone else.

UPDATE: After having a goodnights sleep, and seeing how many requests there where for new tags... I figured we should make it easy for vroom to implement, so why not just make a [DWIM://blarg] ala Acme::DWIM ;)

    that should be [spell://] and if it works in the preview, as it should, then you can correct it if it picks the wrong thing.

    also, btw, dict.org includes jargon file entries.
