Yes, sounds like you found Alehandro's Unity 3D PPA for oneiric which has some extra functionality included, particfularly for the dash and quicklists.

For those who are wondering where to find the PPA, the easiest way to add it is as follows:

1. In Oneiric, open a terminal and run "sudo apt-add-repository ppa:apinheiro/unity-extra-a11y"
2. Run "sudo apt-get update"
3. Then update your system as you normally would, and the new Unity 3D should get installed. You will need to log out and back in again to run the new Unity 3D package.
