Considering that

1) The last released version of the plugin is 3 and a half years old
2) Neither me nor google haven't seen the author here or anywhere else 
since 3 and a half years ago
3) The (compressed) patch size is about half the (compressed) plugin source
4) You've been almost the only one that took care of the plugin (ok, I 
did some very minor things, and probably there have been other 
contributors, but you did the rest)

why don't you take maintainership of the plugin, release a full tarball,
and be done with it?
Bonus points if you release a "stable" (or if you prefer "dead" ;-) 
version for "stable" vdr and a bleeding edge version (without the #if 
APIVERSION madness!) for the development version ;-)

If Ragnar is alive and listening, please speak up.

Bye
