I'd be keen to give this a go.  I've checked out the website and the only mention I located was in a blog entry from April 5th where he says:

 "Anyway, I have been pretty productive lately, but I just haven't released anything. Upcoming releases:

    * GoogieSpell 3 - Ajax spelling on dope. This version rocks!
    * Nox spelling server - A little Python server that can serve spell service. Uses the same XML format as Google's spell service. I.e. it can be used with GoogieSpell.

Have you heard anything about the source for this? Or perhaps is it not released yet?  I can drop him an email otherwise.
