If this is helpful, I've updated the ARIA Listbox Generator, documented at

The ARIA Listbox Generator automates the process of rendering keyboard and 
screen reader accessible listbox controls, which are instantiated as 
independent Listbox objects.

These Listbox objects support current selection tracking, callbacks, dynamic 
addition and deletion of new option elements, dynamic getting and setting, 
keyboard accessible sortability, and multiselect.
