Note on the project status!

This project is still here, and as far as I know the script still works. But as I don't use Kippt anymore at the very moment, I also don't use this script.

This Project is not actively maintained aynmore! Feel free to submit bugfixes/changes and I'll try to apply them - but I won't fix bugs or add features for now.
