Yes, I too am on the cusp of requiring eWay integration.
Until our transactions ramp up its more cost beneficial for us to use Paypal, but we would probably want to use eWay in a few months.
Initial author did a great job of getting this working so far. I would have thought eWay might lend a helping hand and provide a test gateway account to help developers like this bring them business. It would be worth contacting them I think.
Also I hope that last htmlentities code change by Wayne can get integrated into the latest downloadable version.
I certainly hope this module gets some life blown back into it
