Right now, it's only in CVS head.  Aaron did a major refactoring after
0.6.4 (as well as adding features), but apparently stalled before
making another release.  Honestly, I haven't looked closely at the
code since 0.6.4, so your understanding is as good as mine-- I think
your assessment is correct, but using GM_execute... is somehow safer
than simply calling unsafeWindow.someContentFunction() (which is
indeed unsafe).

I'll poke Aaron; sorry for the slow response.
