Thanks for your work on this, Gord. I had to make some changes for the new 3.0 release. Language switching was removed as it's been moved to another file. The environment variable no longer works, so the files are moved to/from. I added in path portablization to recent files and default open/save directories (defaulting to PortableApps.comDocuments) to make things easier for users as well.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
