You realize you are upsetting the entire industry standard of Word Processors 
out there, right? :) I have long agreed with you and used that one-check method 
for my LaTeX writing; but FlySpell generally "just works" and has proven very 
useful for things I forget to ispell, like emails and note pages (where later 
coming back to typos is more distracting to me than correcting them 
immediately). "Just works", that is, until you try to complement it's 
look-behind with the AC-ispell "look-ahead".
