Agreed. Confusing and blatantly daft typos are my intended target.

I've put all of my scripts and data up at
including an ispell filter (haven't tried it out yet)
and a stopword list.

Here's example output from my script using my stopword list:

linux-2.5.63-bk5.old/include/asm-s390x/atomic.h: 1


linux-2.5.63-bk5.old/include/asm-s390x/rwsem.h: 1


linux-2.5.63-bk5.old/include/asm-s390x/dasd.h: 3
