Ops... I knew I was doing something wrong...

Sorry about that... I have ispell configured to use the british dictionary
as a default.
I think this inconsistency already existed before my patches... So, what should
I do? Should I resend the patchset, adding a patch to convert from british to
american spelling before my new changes? Or can the patches be committed as they
are now, and then I send a follow-up patch to convert the spelling?

In any case, I'll send the new version of the patchset or the follow-up patch
(depending on what is the preferred thing) later this week, on Thursday or on
Friday (right now I am overloaded with work-related stuff).
