Good tool, needs docs
One particularly useful thing about this tool is that it uses libe2fs rather than trying to reinvent the wheel (and thus needing to work out bugs that other folks have already solved). The lack of any end-user documentation at all is a bit unfortunate -- I'd like to see this included with Debian, as it's quite handy for setting up UML instances without needing root powers (or a different instance of UML to do the setup). Support for setting/modifying file permissions would be a nice addition, too.

Overall, though, this tool is a Very Good Thing -- particularly on account of the author doing things the Right Way and using a stable, standard, well-supported API rather than trying to build yet another ext{2,3} implementation.
