SubjectRe: [PATCH] Change all occurrences of 'flavour' to 'flavor'

No, your patch isn't silly, it's EVIL. It fundamentally breaks the notion
of "grep for usage" by introducing two names to the same thing, without
having even a good reason (ie no "nice abstraction" thing or anything).

So that's just bad.

In contrast, switching "authflavour" to "authflavor" (to match the type)
ahs the advantage of _improving_ greppability.
