The code I have is from the “NIE 2.0 Developer Goodies” package on UNNA.

The compiled version on UNNA seems to have those added features, so I don’t know where the source is for that or if someone did it on their own.

    Hey cool, I didn't realize that was broken by the 711000 patch! Where did
    you find the original source? I feel like Grant was looking for that a
    while ago (but he may have found it).
