No wonder I never saw that module.  It doesn't actually show up on the site, 
even in the CVS version, as far as I can see.

I always wonder how many cool modules that do just what I need already exist 
that I don't know about because they're not tagged or are tucked away in 
someone's sandbox.  

I've not tested the module yet, but UI-wise, I'd think the "obvious" UI would 
be to simply add a node type checkbox list below the role checkbox list in 
the existing UI, then throw in a "non-node input fields" checkbox at the 
bottom for good measure.  It would be no worse than the rest of the filter 
UI, and fits with common convention.  

This is a feature I keep meaning to work on for a project I am building slowly 
on the side, since I know I'll need it as well.  If it's already done via 
contrib, that's fine too if it's a stable contrib.  I'll try and take a look 
at the module soon.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
