New version available: 0.9.4. Should fix the link problems everyone was having, along with the Snow Leopard incompatibilities.

For the curious: the link issue was caused by a formatting change on wikipedia's html output. The Snow Leopard issues were caused by a widget.system('mkdir ...') call -- I changed to it widget.system('/bin/mkdir ..') and all is well (hopefully).

Please let me know if any other problems arise. An email is the best way to get my attention: [email protected]
