To begin with I have to say that this mod is not my idea but I am the Author of the code and the mod. Now to the mod.
What does it do ?
It adds a substance so called darkmeal (obviously related to bonemeal) that prevents growing.
What exactly does it prevent from growing? It prevents dirt from turning into grass, cactus from growing and also makes them placeable beside each other so that you now can build a wall of cactus and saplings from growing into trees
Uses ? The so called 'Dead Dirt' can be used to make nice paths, the saplings for decoration purposes and te cacti to make a mob proof wall or so.
Vanilla compatible ? I think so. Maybe the cacti are a bit overkill
IC² compatible ? YES!
How to install ? & ModLoader ? As every good mod this one too requires ModLoader. Instructions:
Download the zip-Archive through the adf.ly link
Extract it with a serious kind of software like 7zip or WinRar
Locate the minecraft.jar by going to %appdata% and then .minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar
Make sure to make a backup before you now open the minecraft.jar with .zip Program
Copy everything from the downloaded .zip into the minecraft.jar
Delete the META-INF Folder!
Close everything before you start minecraft and you're fine
Or if you have mcForge installed you can just put the .zip into the mods folder. I can't confirm that myself. The user "I don't now" told us.

Cool mod! However, you should mention in the installation instructions that you can just put into the mods-folder. Oh, and I have a suggestion: If you craft dead stuff with bonemeal, it should get normal again, I accidently killed all my cacti and the next desert is about 3000 blocks away...
Still cool mod!
I have another suggestion: Dead sugarcane, dead wheat and dead milk. Dead sugarcane would be crafted into deadly sugar which could be used with dead wheat and dead milk(and normal eggs) to create deadly yummy cake.
