This module was written by Rob Loach, however, the idea came from the Lullabot team when they mentioned someone should put a module together that does this for Drupal 6. Jeff Eaton suggested the name Swappy, but String Overrides was a bit more descriptive.


This module is currently in development and will be available sometime soon. If you checkout HEAD from the CVS, you'll see its progress.
