I'd argue that we should not silently change the behavior of existing
installations, just with an 'apt-get upgrade' from 4.5.1 to 4.5.2.

I see two ways forward:

- just change the manpage in 4.5 and older
- do an incompatible change for 4.6 and use
  'fruit:resource' with a fallback to 'fruit:ressource'
- document the mess in the 4.6 manpage
- use a new name e.g. 'fruit:resource method' with a fallback
  to 'fruit:ressource'
- document the new name and the broken legacy in the manpage
- Here we would be able to backport the patches to 4.5 and older
  and have it at least consistent between 4.5.next, 4.4.next and 4.6.0

I'd tend to 2).
