you know, in retrospect i should have told people the way to "try it before you buy it"...
1. download the kext to some random place, but don't put it into the Plugin directory
2. sudo chmod -R 755 AppleACPIThermal.kext
3. sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleACPIThermal.kext
4. sudo kextload -d /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext AppleACPIThermal.kext
at this point kextload should tell you that it successfully loaded the extension. the prefix of the -d directory above (/System/Library/Extensions) may need to be changed to point to whatever directory AppleACPIPlatform.kext is in. in my case, its not actually in /S/L/E because i moved it out of the way to make sure the one from boot-132 really loads. you can have your copy of AppleACPIPlatform.kext in any directory you want, just as long as you give the full path to AppleACPIPlatform.kext as the -d argument.
if your system gets hosed up, then you can just reboot and everything should be fine. if your system seems to work right, then you can take the more permanent step of copying this kext into the Plugins directory of AppleACPIPlatform.kext.

Interestingly enough, when I booted into Safe Mode, the AppleAPCIThermal.kext loaded, so possibly just rebooting in safe mode was all that was needed. Anyhow, after I did that and rebooted, the audio was dead.
Copied VoodooHDA back into the Extra/LenvoS10Ext folder, re-ran UpdateExtra from the Extra folder, and rebooted.
AppleAPCIThermal.kext is loading and fans are working and audio is installed and working too. I think I'll leave it alone, now.
