Literacy rates are actually quite low in the US...  Our educational  
system is not what  it used to be.  As for what sub-version of  
English to use?  You have to consider that the English speakers in  
the rest of the world, for the most part, learn British english.   
It  /is/  actually considered an easier dialect to understand, as the  
brits tend to speak slower and annunciate better.  As for  
spelling...  Personally I mix and match thanks to my background  
(spellcheck has a field day with that).  I say we leave it up to Ton  
(oh Great Leader one) and avoid a holy war (this whole thing was  
discussed to death on the linux kernel list).

Hey.  why not make it a user-pref? (  kidding ;P  )
