GA Greasemonkey Script to decode Etsy ref codes

I've been working on a script to make it easier to understand some of the information Etsy includes in our Google Analytics data. With the script installed a table is added on the detail report pages under "Content by Title".
It includes all of the ref codes that I am aware of, it just won't show the more obscure codes if they aren't present in your data.
To use it, you must be using firefox, you must have greasemonkey installed, and then go here and click install:
Go to your GA account, go to Content in the left menu, then Content by Title. Go down to the bottom of the table where it says "Show rows:" and change that to the maximum. Click on any item title and you should see something like in the image above.
Note that "Direct" includes parts of the site that don't have ref codes such as the Treasury and Gift Guides. Also for a few days Etsy had the Category ref codes replaced by the Showcase codes, so if you see pageviews from the Showcase and you haven't bought Showcase spots, that's why.
There's room for improvement, but I think it can be useful as is and hopefully someone who knows what they are doing will finish it :)
