Drupal 6, 7, 8 version
It's not too complicated to create module for newer Drupal versions. Because I don't need that, I haven't done anything for it. Feel free to contact me for development if needed (Yes, It will involve some small donation ;)).

Drupal 7 version
There is, in fact, a drupal 7 version somewhere on my computer. I'm too lazy to find it now, but I made it sometime back. It works. In case you need it, just shout, i'll add it to repository.
