Code update suggestion to fix html error

Have been having trouble with one specific plugin not playing nice with your plugin, ran it by the dev and I think he was wondering if you could modify the code in your plugin with the following:

comment lines 183 and 184:

//$message = preg_replace( "/({MESSAGE})/", $message, $html_template );
//$message = preg_replace( "/(MESSAGE)/", $message, $message );

In that area insert the following to replace those two lines:

$message = str_replace( "{MESSAGE}", $message, $html_template );

Could this change be included in the next update or is there a specific reason it is coded the other way?
