This is not an option in the normal sense we use that in Emacs, IMHO.  
Options is something you routinely turn on to customize Emacs.  Flyspell 
is not like that.  Options (at least those in the menu bar's Options menu) 
are global, and when you "Save options", they get written to .emacs.  
Flyspell is not like that.

To me, Show/Hide is about minor display features.  Speedbar is much more 
than a minor display feature, so I think classifying it as a tool is more
