I can confirm that it works on manila 2.5.19222910 when you apply the same trick as described in the post you are refering to.
I quote from the post with modification for this mod:
* First of all create a backup of your own 0d61c97c_manila file from windows directory
* [install 16/20 quicklinks and extended appointment, appelflap]
* Finally copy previously saved 0d61c97c_manila file back in windows folder.
* Restart manila
I was to late with backing up the required file and I have copied the 0d61..manila file from the post that aliendll refered to. (fortunately this works also)
Thanks CookieMonster !!
