Essentially we would like to do the same as we (well, mostly Harry) did with the speller: abstract over the grammar checker backend, to allow alternative backends to co-exist, and at the same time make the core grammar checker code multilingual & language independent.

As Fran wrote, our target is a combination of hfst and vislcg3 (both open source), at least for the linguistic analysis part of the GC (one could imagine something different for things like punctuation control etc. - but I don't know enough about the details to say anything meaningful in that area).
