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.
