Well, technically Cream does have spell check, just not the suggestion
component for mis-spelled words.
A mature spelling functionality has been difficult to implement for
Vim, because unlike a single-platform editor that can rely on an OS
functionality (as some vim scripts do), a solution for multiple ones
requires an internal implementation of code AND dictionaries. I'm not
even sure I know of another besides (maybe?) emacs.
This is all about to change, but until Vim 7 goes beta, I find
dictionary.com very good at suggestions.
Good luck with Kate.
