I believe it was the intended spelling.

However, your proposed solution (of including both) is a very good
one.  I see no reason why the .conf file could not be modified to
include both.  That's certainly evident in other language .conf files.
  Also some of the other language .conf files includes partial
spellings (which I wasn't willing to do in this case), so I can't see
any downside to accepting both spellings.

You say tomato, I say tomato. :)
