I am aware of it.  I tried it before writing my version, but I can't remember 
what issues I encountered with it that made me not like it.  After a brief 
trial, the big difference I see is it not handling *This* or /This/ in Org mode 
sentences, which is a big deal to me.  I use the same formatting in my custom 
writing mode, so when writing internal dialogue (for which I use italics), I 
want the dialogue to be capitalized.

One feature of mine that's absent in that one is the ability for a user to 
specify a sentence start function.  I've found this exceedingly helpful in 
every mode.  I can specify a function to check for a comment in programming 
modes, the start of a list or heading in Org mode, and the start of the input 
line in chat modes.  The way Rodgers's version is implemented, such a feature 
isn't possible.
