I appreciate your pushing stuff out using SVN!  For all us Piston  
users, it makes it much easier to update!

One thought that comes to mind is it would be nice to either have a  
CHANGES or VERSION file in the plugin.  I know I've seen this  
suggested by other users as well.  Real supporting for knowing what  
version of a plugin you had was one of the things I had been hoping  
Rails2 would have had :-(

I like the simpler API as well!
