Fixed. Thanks. :)

No, that is not a common pattern. I just thought it would make it easier
to install on WPMU so that you wouldn't have to modify the plugin file.

When modifying WP plugins to work with WPMU, I frequently do it that
way, simply because there's less modifying of plugins for me to do,
which makes for easier upgrading of the plugin.

*Boh*, I actually wrote my plugin a few weeks ago, but only released it
today. :)

Oh, did you register it on the WordPress plugin browser? I didn't do
that for mine, because there is a GPL requirement on the plugins hosted
there, and the Tango smilies are CC-BY-SA, which is not compatible with GPL.
