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.
