Default [SOLVED] Extract Swype .apk?

Hey all,
I've got a G2 running CM7 RC2. One of the things that I loved about the stock rom was that swype was included. Unfortunately, CyanogenMod only has the default on-screen android keyboard. I made a backup image of my stock rom right before I installed CM. Is there any way that, if I backup my current configuration and reflash my backup of the stock rom, I could copy the package for swype over to the SD card to be reinstalled on CM? Even better yet, could I directly extract it from that image?

I could take the easy (warez) way out, but that isn't as appealing.

Swype is open Beta last time I checked. Just go get it for yourself.

Default Swype extract program

If you have a nandroid backup of a ROM with functioning Swype (which it sounds like you do), there's an app around somewhere on here called SwypeRestore.apk that does it for you. Sorry I don't have it right now.
