Great! Thanks for adding it. Write-up looks good to me.

This is exactly the motivating factor in releasing the code. If researchers
don't have to go through the work of implementing the algorithm, I think it
might get even more use across research domains.
On a related note, I know a few people have downloaded the code already. I'd
be happy to hear if they actually got it to build and could at least run the
examples. After that, if anyone wants to let me know what they think of the
utility of the implementation or places for near-term improvement, I'd love to
hear about it.
