Great! This seems to be way simpler than a dictionary solution, and it
is language independent, too.

Do you think it is worth to translate the whole expression
  ``some text''
  "some text"
in the filter? It looks more robust to me.

Does aspell support regular expressions in filters?

If you don't have time for that can you please give me some hits?
I could _try_ to fix it myself and then supply a patch.
