You want "Sub-architecture".

Nothing, but is there anything wrong with correcting 'till to until?

Bah. I managed to miss that word in the line more than once... and I 
had it highlighted in red :|

Correcting? Well, you might correct the grammar, e.g. "This wasn't 
included until now because..." Non-native English speakers will read this 
comment and that's a good argument for good grammar, but I don't care too 
much for fixing this myself.

It is hard for me to understand other people's terse comments, which would 
make it hard for me to rewrite them in correct English. Sometimes I first 
have to figure out the idiom being used. But it is even harder to 
understand them after nuances are removed.

To answer your question, I find it easier to parse the original idiom, 
"'til now". Your corruption, "until now", loses information available to 
anyone who can recognise the idiom. Granted, this is not the worst example 
of that effect...

It is either "till now" or "until now". 
"'til" is just broken english.

Seems you are right that "till" is also an accepted abbreviation (I found 
both in the Oxford American Dictionary). I suppose that there's no typo to 
fix here.

Well, both "'till" and "'til" are broken. It is either "till" or "until".
The fix was valid.

"until" and "till" are _not_ the same word, "till" is not an abbreviation
of "until", it's actually quite the opposite. I suspect this is obivous
for most non-english germanic speakers I will guess. "Until" is in
norwegian "inntil", meaning "in to", and "till" is just english spelling
of our "til" (meaning "to").

The spelling of "until" should ofcourse be "in till".  :)

I belive the Scots also say "unto".

The etymology of "until" shows that it bases itself in the middle english
"untill" which is derived from (quote) "un- (see unto) + till" or just
merely (quote) "till".

Looking up "till" gives (quote) "till (til) prep., conj. [OE. til] same
as UNTIL"

That means that "til" is Old English for "till" which when used as a
preposition or conjunction is the same as "until".  (Old English stopped
being used circa 1100AD.)

However, discussing "til" is merely a distraction.  "til" is not "'til".
"'til" is a contraction of "until" where the "'" here denotes the missing
letters ("un").  Just like "he'll" where the "'" denotes the letters "wi"
(giving "he will") or "'70" meaning "1970".

So I'd say that "'til" is as correct as "until" which can, in turn, be
directly replaced by the word "till".  Or at least according to my late
'70s dictionary.
