I entertained the idea of running codespell as a CI job, but it is much too crude for that to be a good idea:

  1. there's no way to do inlined ignore-sections, we can only ignore full words unconditionally everywhere. At one place we have an example directory list in a comment that causes a whole bunch of complaints...
  2. it spell checks the code too (with no way to disable it) and for example it insists that our variable name 'aline' is potentially a misspelled 'align' and it feels wrong to have to whitelist "aline" for that

This makes the tool much too weird for it to be useful in the CI. I'll instead try to run it manually every once in awhile.
