You mean agnubis (which was really a failure). I was partly involved
there, too. It mainly hasn't reached any stable release, because people
didn't think in detail what they were trying to do.
Let's not make the same mistake(s) again...

looks very dead. No commits for almost 2 months now.
Is it really using the abi-framework, yet? I don't think so (at least
what I've seen code-wise).
I think for now it should be freshly started using the framework.
criawips has been discussed for months now (without any releases).
I hope that time has come now...
