Nice! one more vote and I can commit this change as well.

I like patch there (to use it not only with TV but with any flexform). 
But I found more than one place where ['tx_templavoila']['title'] 
appears, so they all should be changed.

Question is very reasonable :)

This code checks if $t[$this->langSplitIndex] is not false (i.e. it is 
set and not empty) and only than uses it, otherwise uses first element 
of array, which is string itself if no pipe character present. So it 
should work properly unless field's title contain pipe character.

Agree but this would be another bug and patch. I think each change 
should correct one specific problem or it will be hard to understand 
history of changes. For example, in TV I commit each time after I fix 
one specific problem. Ver aeasy to revert if it was wrong.

...and loose compatibility with many existing TV installations :) + 
update docs.

I fully agree, I even thought about writing a bug report about it (which 
I will write!). I want to support both ways:
- ['label']
- [$whatever]['title']

far more than our abilities." (A.P.W.B.D.)
