Shouldn't the condition be changed to include 0. Either ">= 0" or "< 0" with statements swapped?

In my experience working on open movies, node groups aren't that heavily used actually, so for them such optimization wouldn't give much benefit.
That may be true for artists working on a final shader for rendering, but for creating procedural textures and other complexities to be used by those artists, node groups are essential. For procedurals alone, this patch is a godsend.

By chance I found the windows build reposted by liquidape on polycount here.
