Took me some time before I found out why the function wasn't found in my SQL script ;-)

pushing this to 2.2. Even if we did decide to change the name, we can't have name changes in a micro.

I forgot did someone say Tesselate is an alternative spelling for Tessellate in some country? I can't find it when I do a web search except in our PostGIS docs (come up on google). Anyrate too late to be changing names so close to release.

Single "L" is evidently a US thing (crazy us ;-)

All right as long as someone spells it that way. I'm okay with just one name - I hate having two names for the same thing. I'm just going to close this out as invalid. If the French want to spell things the US way, who am I to be the judge.
