This one I think is valid. Considering how many people seem to care, I
think we should keep it as the only valid case for now.

I don't much care. I was taught English spelling in school, and I've
gotten used to US spelling here.

I think you guys who care should have a huge free-for-all, an electronic
mud-wrestling thing if you will. But not on linux-kernel.

I can see it now:

".. Alan Cox gets up, and tackles Zwane, who goes down in the mud.
Oops. They were on the same side. I guess Alan got caught up in the
rush. Jasper tries to take advantage of the situation, but slips in
the mud, and goes down in a heap with Alexander..."

Tell me when it's over.
