textbox / prompt in mpl / inputbutton

Hello list,

are there any new developments about a field to input text or numbers, which
was discussed in thread "Prompt in MPL - NEVER MIND" in June 2007?

Especially I am interested if there exists a version of John Hunters
textbox2.py working with current svn, because I am not able to resolve the
differences between 0.91.2 and 1.0.svn.

Kind regards,
