Sorry, did not saw it was about an addon at first.

Btw, other issue with this addon - seems to always assume to be in Cycles materials nodes (adds Cycles' output node even when editing internal nodal material!).

Got it. I will take care about it shortly.
At first I will fix behavior with hidden sockets.
As for material nodes for Blender Render: The add-on is not intended for material nodes in Blender Render. I will add restriction that will disable it when working with Blender Render material nodes.
