Well, vapourware is a bit hard, but at least my own implementation (see the archive) would indeed require some work (mainly the frontend code - the timing critical backend part is done) to be of actual use.
One reason I didn't finish the project is that I never got any answer to exactly under which circumstances the current namefinder is slow - during my own tests, it was reasonably fast. Without knowing that I cannot test whether my own implementation is actually performing better under comparable conditions, so replacing the current one doesn't make much sense.
The code is available under the terms of GPL v2 if anyone would like to finish or reuse it.
