Sharepoint 2007: 'Only their own' permission on Document Library - Update!

OK, after getting tired of manually setting this using Sharepoint Manager 2007, I decided to put together a solution. This solution provides a nice drop-down on the Document Library 'Security' menu like this:

And when you click on the 'Read/Write Security' link, you'll see this:

It looks and acts just like the page for standard lists - but this one also works for document libraries.

This is exactly what I needed today, and I'm so glad I found your post and the codeplex solution. We have several departments, including HR, using InfoPath forms, some of which include sensitive employee data. This will allow users to submit forms without being able to view other employees' forms. Thank you so much! One question - do you know if/when a solution that is compatible with SharePoint 2010 will be available? We're migrating soon, and I'm hoping to find a solution that will work post-migration as well. Thanks again!

Did Julie ever get an answer?
Now that nearly everyone is on 2010, having a version of this that works on 2010 would be very useful!

What work would be required to get this working on SP 2010?
