Message OK, as you say, Snow Leopard is out, so we can discuss it publicly.

No, SCPlugin does not work in Snow Leopard. Not in the slightest, not even a teeny bit. Apple has removed one of the key APIs we were using (Contextual Menu Items), and completely rewritten Finder in Cocoa instead of Carbon, which is probably way cool for some reason or other, but means a second key interface were were using, via mach_override, would need to be completely rewritten, and finally Apple have apparently obfuscated the Finder symbol table, meaning we can't.

So we have basically three major rewrites to do before it works in Snow Leopard (and beyond).

I'm sure the next question is "when will it be available," but I have no answer for that. This is a very small team open-source project; it makes progress only as fast as its volunteers can contribute. At the moment, we have an unusually small team, and unusually large rework--not a good combination.
