Hi Floris,
it's an implementation of the tail correction from Horn et al., J. Chem
Phys. 120:9665-9678, modified for our switching function. I wouldn't
call it ready for prime time yet, as I've only tested/used it on pure
water systems -- I need to adapt it a little bit and then will document
it when it is ready for general use.

Is this comparable to the GROMACS dispersion correction scheme? Is this ready for use? Is it general in scope (i.e. independent of water model and cutoff / switching scheme)?
