What do you think about correcting the spelling of "THRU"?
(THRU was filtered out of the posted patch)?

  $ grep THRU tests/existing.at
  %token THRU
          | COPY TEXT THRU
          | COPY THRU

This is a minor weakness in the misspellings script:
it would map all-caps THRU to leading-cap Through, rather than to THROUGH.

I suggest to do this,

  sed -i 's!THRU!THROUGH!' tests/existing.at

if only to avoid the need for an exclusion when/if this
is automated or repeated.
