    One of the goofier features Intellij offers is spellchecking of freetext like variable and function identifiers and comments. (They have some special rules I don’t know in detail to avoid flagging non-word things common in source code like compound words or single-letter identifiers.) It seems sort of silly (“spelling doesn’t matter, and to the extent it does, the compiler will check it for me!”), but it would have prevented this issue, and I actually appreciate having it.

      Also makes me wonder whether colorisation could help code reviews (eg colour identifiers based on their hash), so that misspelling looks obvious.
