I can see several possible ways forward with this:

* provide a complete fix for the issue that would be more likely to get
merged upstream,
* instead of adding hacks in the code, actually rename the wrongly named
* instead of adding hacks, actually fix all the references to use proper
* if everything else fails, look for a better supported project that
provides this functionality.
