It was replaced by the more properly named getText(). You'll notice
it's documented that way in the code and in the javadocs.

Excellent, that's on the todo list (TODO.txt in the root). Feel free to
send in the mods.

That's an interesting approach. I kind of like it; you stay within your
own namespace. What do others think?

Looks like you have done good work. Go digging!
