Broken USPS international shipping in Magento

Last night when USPS updated their API they opted to change the method names used in the API again. The result of this is that First Class for international no longer shows up for Magento sites using their API. To fix this and reenable international first class you just have to add the text "First-Class Package International Service" to the file app/code/core/Mage/Usa/etc/config.xml in 2 places around line 188 in recent versions. The 2 sections are and . Both are comma separated. Once you add it there and clear your cache you can go into admin, in the config section under shipping methods. Go to the USPS section and the new shipping method will appear in the allowed methods lists. Select it, save, clear your cache and you should be back in business.
