"RequestPolicy": can people take a look at it?

Hi folks,

A smart security person pointed me to the "RequestPolicy" firefox
extension. I've had it on my todo list for a month but haven't found
time to look at it. Anybody here want to take a look, give it a spin,
decide if it solves an important problem, figure out how well it coexists
with Noscript and Torbutton, etc?
