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.
