Hi Nathan:
I downloaded and tried it out. There were a few issues that I had to work through, but finally got things working.
Can you apply this patch to your changes prior to checking things in?

I also would suggest configuring with --enable-picky as there are something like 10 warnings generated due to your changes. And check for tabs.

Otherwise, I think it is good.
