Seems pythonw works fine if you add the "--standalone" option, but
afraid going to 0.57 will not help with the spell check support.
Could you share how you got the spell checker to work in the first
place? I haven't managed that yet. Maybe we can ask Brendan to compile
it in if we know how to install it in the build environment.

There are menu options in the "format" menu, but no default
keybindings assigned. You can configure an key binding if you use them

I've thought about it in the past, but so far I use tags to deal with
status of tasks.
Looking at your list of suggestions I can guess at the workflow, but
not convinced these should be checkboxes. Sound more like tags that
you may want to display as an icon. Is that correct ? Or are these
really task like ?
