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...
