I knew about this tool. Although I have never used it myself before, I
have done some diggings on it. From what I can see, it is suspiciously
similar to vserver. The fact that it arise after the start of the
vserver project, it still doesn't have quota support, etc... All seem to
indicate that it may be based on vserver.
Jack may want to check this out. I don't know what the license for
vserver. But if the license is GPL or anything like that, we may have a
possible license violation/copyright infringement here.
