This feature request should especially be important for all non-native English but using this language.
I'm Polish and almost entirely communicate in Identi.ca in English. Choqok use Polish language by default (due to localization). OK, I can change it. But now it's kind of troublesome. Why? To switch from one dictionary to another I have to right click on text field and in context menu select spell checker. And then choose English dictionary from the list. One step should be enough (or 'don't make me think' when it comes to usability).

There's no need to reinvent the wheel so we should use an existent solution. One that is very nice and helpful is that of Firefox. Firefox allows you to choose other dictionary in context menu and it's that I'd like to see in Choqok.

We had talked about it already with Mehrdad in Identi.ca and he agreed (or proposed cuz my proposition was slightly different) that dictionary switcher in context menu would be a good idea.

One can say and object that it's redundant but I'd like to emphasize that this is very helpful for people using at least two languages.

Comments? Ideas?

Reproducible: Didn't try
