[New-bugs-announce] [issue5341] A selection of spelling errors and typos throughout source

New submission from Mark Dickinson <dickinsm at gmail.com>:
Here's a patch that represents the result of grepping through the source
for some of my favo(u)rite spelling errors.
Georg, I reali(z/s)e that most of these fixes are outside the Doc/
directory, but are you interested in taking a look at these? Please
unassign if not.
- I'm pretty sure that all of these are genuine errors. The only one
that may be controversial is 'builtin -> built-in' (when used as an
adjective). The 'Apple Publications Style Guide' seems to use built-in in
preference to builtin. I also think I missed a few of these.
- My (American English) spell-checker complains about 'signalled', but it
looks fine when I put my British English eyes in. The docs contain
instances of both 'signalled' *and* 'signaled'. Is there any consensus on
whether American English or British English should be used for Python's
documentation? (Should also check for 'signalling' versus 'signaling'.)
