Test::Spelling lets you check the spelling of a POD file, and report
its results in standard Test::More fashion. This module requires a
spellcheck program such as spell, aspell, ispell, or hunspell.
You can add your own stopwords, which are words that should be ignored by the
spell check. See libpod-spell-perl (which this module is built upon) for a
variety of ways to add per-file stopwords to each .pm file. If you have a lot
of stopwords, it's useful to put them in your test file's DATA section.
