Easy Blogging, don't hide my custom dashboard widget

Hiya, I'm in the process of writing my own custom dashboard widget. Is there a way to prevent the Easy Blogging plugin from removing it?

I notice that you can set easyblogging not to hide the Right Now widget so I'm assuming that there is some functionality for this.

(I know that you can add a custom widget in the easyblogging settings, but my widget isn't simple text/html and needs to be written in php.)

Thanks
Jack
