We changed our usage from StyleSheet to Stylesheet a number of years ago, but we preserved the actual paths being used because changing it would have caused some backward compatibility issues. We could have easily changed the option name, but it seems even sillier to have such a discrepancy between the option name and its default values. I'm glad you were entertained.
