    Personally, I prefer the european flavour too.

    However, a quick count on the original tree shows:

    spaans@spaans:~/bk/export$ grep -ir 'flavour' . |wc -l
    74
    spaans@spaans:~/bk/export$ grep -ir 'flavor' . |wc -l
    192

    which is why I chose to do it this way.

    There's no reason to not do it the other way around, of course.
