Smarter Word Processors

Could one of you from the software clan enlighten me? How far away are we from developing a word processor with the ability to "learn" the common mistakes made by the user. For example, I often mistakenly type "wtih" instead of "with". Seems like after a few spell check sessions, a program could learn to automatically scan the text, recognize my idiosyncratic mistakes, and make the necessary corrections. Much less time would be spent spell checking. Just an idea that will hopefully make some extropian rich and me less aggravated.
