Emacs already uses ?spell for spell checking, GPG for signatures, and
probably many more tools I'm not aware of.  I also think it's safe to
assume that if someone needs a decent editing capabilities for a program
source, she has tools that are able to compile that program source
already installed.

(I'm not saying that requiring a compiler for completion is the only
possible option, by the way.  I just wanna say, that not everything has
to be implemented in Emacs Lisp and for one, I hope no one will try to
reimplement GPG in Emacs Lisp).
