Spell Checking built into KTextEdit?

Recently there has been a lot of work going on in the spell checking area, namely
check-as-you-type (KMail and Konq text entry are two areas that come to mind). What
I am wondering is if maybe this code can be placed directly into KTextEdit so other apps can
make use of it as well? Just a function to toggle check as you type on and off, a function
that returns the KSpellConfig widget for the KTextEdit, and maybe a function to set the
highlight color, would be all thats needed to be added to the KTextEdit API that i can see.

If people are open to this idea I would volenteer to do the coding for it, I already made a 
check as you type plugin for Kopete whose need would be eliminated if this avenue was
