That's an interesting question. A casual glance at the source code doesn't
help, unfortunately: apparently both the aperture and the f-number were added
within a short amount of time (33cfb31cf vs 803e77395).
My best guess is that fnumber was first renamed to aperture, and then a
mistake was made when applying some patch, reintroducing fnumber...
