I vote for option 1, although can we also have the author of the api 
change hung, drawn, and quartered? Please?

The original spelling wasn't wrong, and the ripple of consequences is 
more like a tidal wave when cross-version compatibility is taken into 
account.  This inconsistency, rather than the "misspelling", is going to 
permeate the SCTP world for years to come.

Grrr. I may have done similar on codebases under my control once (a real 
spelling mistake), but I'd never do it again :-(

Raimo, thanks for taking the time to clean it up for Erlang.

Regards,
Bruce
