I could do that, but there are two problems with that. (1) I really
prefer to rely on the package manager. (2) I could add it as an svn
extern (I'm using svn), but your repository is git and I wouldn't know
how to reconcile the two attractively.

That sounds like a great idea, but I am confronted with a dilemma. As
you say, you have some things to sort out in personal life, so I don't
know how long before we see a pluginable interface being available. So I
either have to include a static snapshot into my source and patch that,
or wait and use the newer 2.1 interface. Either way, they both involve
some important design decisions that I need to make quickly.
