Hi Tom,

Github, yes.  The fork is here:


I may make some other modifications.  I'll publish those as well.  The
v2 folder is where you should build from.

If getType() was stubbed out, then my guess is that we shouldn't mess
with it.  Perhaps we should change the name of this method to
something else.  getClass() maybe...
