Is there a reasonable subsitute for curry leaves?

The COTM 660 Curries thread inspired me to get the book, albeit after you all had finished your thread.

I'm going to do a lentil recipe tonight (Red & Yellow Lentils with Garlic and Curry Leaves), but didn't plan ahead well enough to get curry leaves. Is there a reasonable substitute? I do have several different dry curry powder mixes on hand and most raw ingredients that go into a curry powder.

I recognize the dish may not be quite the same if I omit one of the key ingredients (it is right there in the title, after all!) but I'm willing to bet something a little different might still be tasty- just trying to get the flavors close, if possible.
