Check the links I sent.
The new hook for D6 is available for D5. Bryght (now RainCity Studios)
sponsored the work on this because they saw a lot of value in easing

So those who will use that for D5 have an assured migration path
But your module is a dead end for D5.
Leave it out there, but point to the alternatives, caveats, options, ...etc.
