In RPG Maker VX, the default setup allows you to have five tilesets for the map layout. Is there a way I can increase this limit?

I know it's possible to make "fake" tiles by using events overlaid on the real tiles to show different images. However, this is a huge hassle to setup, and isn't a very clean way of creating the game; I'm hoping there is another way.

It looks like RPG Maker VX is overly restrictive with this when compared to other versions, and there is no out-of-the-box way to do it. However, there are at least community-made scripts, such as SwapXT (download), that allow you to work around the limitation.
