One?  I know of several, though I suppose it depends on what you mean
by "decent" and "integrated".  David Pilling provides

a) MicroSpell
b) !Spell
c) dictionary support used by !CrossStar and OvationPro (and maybe
   other things?)  As far as I know these are not the same as !Spell.

I have a feeling that Beebug once sold something as well.

There's also the CC !SpellMod module supplied with Impression Junior
and used in StrongED.

I have no idea how easy it is to integrate any of these with arbitrary
other applications.  Is there by any chance a central RO SWI (set) that
any app could use to request a spelling check?  I presume that none of
the current facilities support foreign languages well, or UniCode.

Jeremy C B Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
