Welcome to (the horror of) Calc! :-)  You'll find plenty of it around
here though I'm not sure how it compares to Writer.

Yes. ScMarkData instance owned by ScViewData stores the authoritative
data on current range selection.  So, you can certainly rely on that to
test for selection change, I would think.

this particular spell-checking code, but I don't see anything alarming.
