I ain't dead. I'm just resting.
Just thought I'd let anyone who's still tracking this blog that there are some updates to the plugin in the svn repository on Google Code: http://code.google.com/p/snippetsemu
I'm hoping to package these up into a release at some point in the (very) near future.
Also, I'll be at EuroPython next week, so feel free to file bug reports in person if you're there as well.
