ESTkv1.5.3.SA Internal Patch Release

In the two weeks since I had released ESTkv1.5.3 internally, the Toolkit has received a shitload of usage from Tyler and the rest of the team.

We figured with me taking a week off to recover, I could also add some trendy new features that we had both been whiteboarding in time to make the patch release. So in the interest of maintaining our momentum and taking one for the team, I had my surgery and spent the week writing code while high on painkillers. I will affectionately refer to this patch release as the ESTk "Opioid" build. Please don't try this at home, kids...

We'll see how that works out later. Anyhow, I thought I'd show everybody the little sprite, how it looks, right now.
