Williams 2006 offers us 'puptēdh oll', with no occurrences of any other spelling that I could find.
Given 77 years of UC, corroborated by 11 years of UCR, I fancy it's too late to do a u-turn. I, for one, have no intention of changing my spelling to comply with this latest fancy of Nicholas's purism.
Pesya scryfa 'pupteth' a vynnaf, del us usyes.
