I tried out the thin one. It seems sturdy enough, but I've found that the motor bolt interferes with the mud washer. My motor has a pretty short shaft, so I have to butt the bearing up right against the y bracket without the normal nut for spacing.

Made this one ;). The thin version, didn't bend on me yet but thanks for the sturdy one! By the way would it be possible to have the thick one and then make two slots in top and bottom so it's slide on? http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30898http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Apart from that really love the K.I.S.S. design and yes it also solves the dragging of the belt on the lower belt super part! Should be in main prusa tree ;).
