breaks cross-platform "Remote - SSH" coding #279

extension version 3.0.38
insiders version 1.34.0 2019-05-01T00:12:25.110Z
local os: mac
remote os: linux

Microsoft's new remote coding setup splits the UI vscode instance from the back-end vscode instance

trying to enable spellright as a remote extension causes the remote connection to go into a sort of a zombie mode (and it does not work when forced to be a ui extension). it might be using launching the wrong node library (since the UI instance is on a different OS in my setup from the backend) and bringing down the remote extension process. more info

To expand on this, the extension doesn't just break cross-platform remote. I was coming here to report that it breaks any remote development in vscode, including connecting to a WSL folder.

The reason that it broke is VS Code remote runs in a pure Node.js environment whose header is different from Electron one. An easy fix is having prebuilt binaries for pure node but it will increase the size of bundled binaries significantly.

I proposed moving to napi-spellchecker and then we only care about platforms. There is already some work happening in #280.
