@tohincoderex Thanks for opening this ticket and bringing this to our attention.

This file is regarded as a file from an external dependency and should for that reason not be changed without due cause.

Renaming the function would break every single function call to that function and would cause fatal errors. Breaking changes like that are not acceptable.

The typo has been in the original external dependency since (at least) 2009.
Of course, the function could be deprecated, a new function without the typo introduced and calls to the function could be updated, but as this is an external dependency, that is the kind of change we normally do not do for those kind of files (at least, not unless the change has first been made in the externally maintained code first).
