According to the header of this file its author is also Miles.

There is no reason to add code in C when it is possible to do the same
thing in Emacs Lisp.

Perhaps, creating a new package with just two functions is not justified.
This functionality might fit to one of the existing files.

The only drawback I see in installed code that it misses the user option
minibuffer-depth-indicator (it was in the C patch).  I suggest adding it
to make this feature more customizable.
