inviteFriends and friendRequest combination

I am using both "friend request" ( and inviteFriends in the elgg 1.7.1 distro

They both work differently i.e. a friendRequest is a mutual friend connection request - inviteFriends sends an email - which takes the user to the registration page, where the user cannot login - I need to unblock the user manually using another admin plugin

Leaving that problem aside for now, I want inviteFriends to work like friendRequest - an email invitation should result in a friendRequest

Is there a plugin like that available? (Couldn't find one) - otherwise I am working on making one myself...
