Sometimes I question our own sanity.  Even for a trivial spelling fix
we require significantly more beaurocracy(sp) than the fix is worth,
and want formal rules instead of using common sense. This is a common
trend in the world, to formalize everything instead of thinking, the
world is becoming "candy".  This reminded me an old movie, "Demolition
Man", -- the cops in the future reads instructions about what to do
in each situation they happened to come.  But oh well, no one want to
take responsibility, that's okay ;)

Sorry for somewhat non-technical answer, I'll revert this patch,
waiting for more beaurocracy.

Mind you, it was a large series, with wasn't intended for -trivial
at all.  That's more rules and more beaurocracy.  And many other
patches in that series didn't have s-o-b line too.
