To be honest, I can't recall where I got the original code from. It
doesn't look I used 0.1 as the base. Attached is a diff between 0.1
and what I have in that repo. I have a feeling I got the original code
from this list when someone like yourself posted an updated 0.1. When
I get the time, I'll search the list and see if I can't find the post.
