That's a fair worry. Ideally, what I'd like is to be able to use these
frequent misspells in much the same was I can use flyspell such that it
turns on in text modes and in comments in prog-modes. I'm not sure how
to implement that, though.

Maybe we could modify flyspell to do these quick auto-replacements using
its own abbrev table? Or something similar to an abbrev table, since
those are per-major mode...
