Has anyone made a solid, stable, fancier, and Windows 7 compatible version of the awesome old Windows XP "Starfield" screensaver?

I'm referring to This one
, which is apparently also known as "Flying Through Space" and "Starfield Simulation".
I've already learned how to get the old one onto Window 7 (just copy/pasting it from a machine with XP), and it works perfect.
I'm really just curious as to whether someone has expanded on it somehow. Colors? Different size/shape planets? Anything?
After googling for a while I've come across a number of folks who have toyed with it, but nothing resembling a stable release (maybe because of licensing issues?).
Sort of a silly use for a Mefi question but I'll bet I'm not the only one curious..
