I just asked something similar the other day.

I would assume that at a low level Aspell has to lookup words, so that 
API is accessing that feature.

Is it a performance problem?  Well, some code has to split the text, so 
the question is what is faster:  your code or Aspell's code.  Might be 
worth doing some benchmarking of your code to split the text vs. using a 
pipe to the aspell binary.

My question the other day was if there was an API to the code that
splits the text (so you could pass in a string of words).
