It took me a long time to figure out what to do with this one. This was a narrow accept overall, but it would've been a narrow reject as well. The hijack is improperly restored, but it's a one-line fix. The code is inefficient, but it's so small that optimization wouldn't save a whole lot. The readme doesn't provide any clear examples for setting slope behavior in a sprite (and the included sprite's new code is uncommented), but it kind of can't because any sprite you'd want to modify will be different.

In the end, I've decided that it's worthwhile enough to accept with the hijack repaired. I've left a comment on the only other fixed-grade sloped sprite I can think of with instructions on how to make it interact with this patch, should that be of interest to anyone.

Tested with Asar 1.81, Lunar Magic 3.40, SA-1 1.40, Snes9x 1.62.3, BSNES Accuracy 0.7.1, PIXI 1.40, Mega Mole, But Sloped.
