   Did you actually grab the source?

No -- I'm looking at the list of features.

   It requires vesta installed to do it (I misspoke earlier, the source is
   "available", except you need a binary to start with, no bootstrapping
   tarballs around or anything).
   Once I saw this, i just figured it wasn't worth the trouble.

The bootstrapping gotcha is kind of funny and makes perfect sense
given the feature set. I hadn't noticed that.

There's a list of publications on the front web page, some of which
describe that they were trying to accomplish and why. It's pretty
different from the default assumptions that are common to arch, CVS,
Subversion et al. The feature set is very, very different (e.g., it
also replaces `make(1)'.)

Another interesting place to look is:
