Haven’t written it up yet because I’m working on allowing you to set per-category post templates.
Are you planning on hosting your plugins on http://wp-plugins.org ? And/or will you be updating the Plugins section on your WordPress Page 🙂 ?
Yes and yes.
I’ve made a couple of changes to this plugin that you might be interested in. In my version, you can also set the units the count is good for (days or posts), and it installs an options panel to let you set your preferences, rather than having to edit the code.
