Dictionary Switcher 0.9mod installs and seems to work now, BUT I noticed 
something very interesting... by mistake, I installed it before xSideBar, and it 
works exactly as well! I retrotested this on SM 1.1.14 as well with the same 

So, it seems xSideBar is not needed at all for Dictionary Switcher. In this 
cases, wouldn't it be easier to just send the author a patch to make the 
application compatible out of the box?

I did this for RikaiChan 1.0.something and the developer himself has kept the 
compatibility (Rikaichan v1.0.7 is SM 1.x/2 compatible) ever since, thus 
leveraging everyone else of that task.
