Put this plugin in wordpress plugin repository

Forked to include .php and .zip versions, which anyone using this will need to do for themselves before uploading to WP.

Great snippet!

You can also put the file in /wp-content/mu-plugins/ (create folder if it does not exist). That way you don't have to manually activate it - it will always load!

Have you tested to see if that still works with 4.2?

Nope 4.2 won't run anymore with that.
