I am planning on giving it a refresh next year, probably around February
or March, I have been busy with other stuff and had no time to keep it
current. I have looked at your commits over these months and kept mental
notices of what needs to change (very little as far as I am concerned).
I need to change the interface on the MIT side as well as with 1.9 the
db layer interface has changed slightly.

As soon as I can get back to that work I will make sure it works with
MIT 1.9 and will push all changes necessary.
