Well, it's true - you do only use the name once, and don't
do anything with it. If there's more to the script than
you've shown, including other uses of $holdingThing, then
perhaps this is the only place where it is spelled in exactly
that way; that's what it means by "possible typo". Remember
that case is significant.
