I was considering how difficult it would be to patch Ruby to accept
British spellings for things like initialize.  I am forever typing
initialise, and wonder if it would break very much code if both forms were
permitted?  I cannot see where this is defined, there seems to be no lex
file that I can see that I can patch.  I'm not sure how much of the world
actually uses our form of English, so I don't know how many takers there
would be for such an addition.

Sorry if this suggestion annoys the neighbo(u)rs,
