The name change was only temporary. Once you release a new version, I
can rectify this with the update that I push (it's one line in the
spec). I really wasn't aware that you weren't using it because you had
it reserved for future use. I did file a ticket on the trac before
implementing this change (which was closed with a WONTFIX). If you'd
like, I could push an update to remove the name change, or I could do it
when you release a new version. Please do let me know.
