Looks like a great plugin - at least if the sample results are
anything to go by!

I've had a quick look over the code and there's nothing too scary
there. I'd suggest that we could approach the author of the plugin and
see if they are interested in submitting the code to the master
branch, so that the code is compiled alongside qgis. This way the
binary won't be an issue, and the algorithm will become available
out-of-the-box. Seems like a win all round to me.
