Sounds pretty cool!  I'll try to look at it later this week.

A suggestion for future patches: please just provide one unified diff 
file for the entire thing, not per file, and please don't provide extra 
files as-is that need to be added.  You can just use 'svn diff' for 
files you've modified, and 'diff -u /dev/null newfile' can be used to 
generate patches for new files (which you can then just append to the 
'svn diff' generated patch.  Basically I just want to be able to run 
'patch -p0 < foo.diff' in the top source directory and not have to do 
anything else.
