Hiya shawn,

Great! I think the proper thing here though would be to actually
put it in extlib/ then symlink it via ln -s to

I think details on the licensing should be checked into the extlib/
directory also. Copying willkg on here for comment.

I know you prefer sending patches but this particular one might be
more properly done via a git commit to a branch... I'm not sure
that a patch can do the symlinking right and etc. If you don't have
experience with that, now's a great time to learn! See the
resources on the wiki ;)
