I would like to add some custom methods to Requirements for use in templates without hacking into the original Requirements.php source.

For example:

<% require mymethod(...) %>

It is easy enough to extend the Requirements backend but not so much the frontend. Any help is much appreciated.

The best solution I came up with was to rename Requirements to Requirements_Frontend and call my custom frontend class Requirements and have it extend Requirements_Frontend. This way only a minimal code change is required in the original source.
