When activating the Placeholder Master Page feature, I get:

Failed to instantiate file "placeholder.master" from module "PlaceHolderMaster": Source path "placeholder.master" not found.

This is a sandbox install of SP, so maybe I've mucked up my settings somewhere else. Is it possible to just get the placeholder.master file for manual insertion? I've already implemented Heather Solomon's custom master page feature that I could use as a wrapper.

Apparently it is as that's what I did. I incorporated the Placeholder.master file from ./12/TEMPLATES/LAYOUTS/ into Solomon's custom master page feature and reactivated.

The Placeholder.master is very helpful. Thanks for putting this together, Scott. (Caught your presentation as Connections Orlando.)
