I see your point, although I had planned to do it the other way around.

Whichever way you decide to go, I suggest you
  1. Look at the src/powers*.inc files - most of the monster power stuff is done there and
  2. Do a diff between Pos and the version of NPP it forked from (which I believe was originally 0.3.1, updated to 0.3.4, and had some bugfixes from 0.4.0) - this should give a good idea of what needs to be added.

I would also suggest posting your code publicly somewhere (github is currently the most popular, but wherever), so others can comment and potentially (if you want to let them!) contribute.
