That was the source of the changes for 'behaviour', 'initialise', and 
'authorised'.  In at least one place within the source, the American 
spelling 'inititialized' was used (crypt.h's crypt_data struct), while 
in the docs, the British spelling was used.  That and some quick greps 
seemed to show the American spellings as being more prevalent.  I'm 
happy to use either though and do the corrections for those words to 
British spelling if that is what is desired.
