IIRC I quickly tried and saw the API change in some non-obvious manner,
meaning one willing to fix it would probably need reasonable knowledge
of the Lua API, or at least being willing to learn some of it.  And I'm
afraid we ain't got no one like that currently.

BTW, the plugin is lacking a maintainer for quite some time now
(probably like 5 years), so I do not expect it to last forever unless
someone is willing to step up for it.  We did the bare housekeeping on
it as much as we could, but that's all.

So yeah, if anyone wishing to keep on using this plugin should consider
helping maintaining it, it really needs some love from time to time.
