Cool, I'll give it a test later today.

We should keep in mind a migration path for the old extension.
Ideally the new one will just be a drop-in replacement, and if we
could migrate the basic settings (ie, enabled/disabled and a
whitelist/blacklist) that would be ideal.  We'll may also want to use
the same UUID so that upgrades are done cleanly, if there's no method
for obsoleting other extensions.
