Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. you can download the plugin from

There's a ton of code within twc, but with the simple controller that I use
it looks relatively small and simple. Just the way it should be :) The
reason that I never did if ! function_exists include php file, is because my
I wanted to keep the bootstrap file small for each plugin. So I would add
and remove functions from the bootstrap as needed.

Have a look at the show_view function within the bootstrap and also have a
look at the small codex I was building on totalwidgetcontrol.com It will
help explain how I was using it.

Totally not trying to throw out a "Plug" here about TWC. I really don't care
about promoting anything I'm just trying to help.
