A few interesting additions!
In doing a little bit of digging, I've found an interview with Nigel Westlake in the Canberra Times in which he states that the majority of his music was cut from the final edit of the film just two weeks before release -- the reason cited is that 'they' (I assume a studio executive) thought that the music was too dark and too violent. I suppose that explains why there is so much sourced music in the film, and so little of the score -- no time for re-recordings!

The movie's Wikipedia article, under the Soundtrack section, has a track listing that is completely different from the official CD release (which also had very little of Westlake's score). I'm pretty sure this represents a bootleg copy of the 50-minute Westlake score that ended up on the cutting room floor; for many of the sequences listed there were accompanied by licensed music in the film. The only internet copy I could find of it was at a Polish website -- would love it if someone who knows Polish might be able to figure out where this music came from!

Man I'm dying to hear some of the stuff that didn't make it into the movie. Dark, jazzy and violent riffs from the sensibilities of the first film's score sound like they should be awesome! The little we do hear in the film is killer -- I sure hope we'll get the chance to hear more of it some day!
I'll also take this space to recommend the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra's 20th Anniversary re-recording of the original Babe score. No film dialogue in-between tracks, and a lot of creative orchestration that wasn't a part of the original score! It's great yo!
