rowl
This is the spelling when the project started
rool
The 'o' in role is really just a long 'o' sound (unlike the short 'o' sound in top, if you are not american!)
the 'o' in role is really just a long 'o' sound (unlike the short 'o' sound in top, if you are not american!), so why not saypyu it as 'rool'. why not establish the rule of doubling the vowel to make it long rather than add in something else.
