Given the scale of the spelling check, I only had, on average, about 10
seconds to spend on each word which required manual investigation.
Typically, this involved things like a dict(1) lookup, a larger wordlist
search, and maybe (if I had a feeling about it) a web-based dictionary

In cases which require more investigation, it should be done by the
maintainer, and they should send feedback to me so that I can make a note of
it for future checks.
