Does anyone know if this project is dead or dying? Hate to see such a worthy opensource project fall by the wayside.

The first two paragraphs of your readme contradict that. "A handful of hosts..."
I've had nagios doing check_by_ssh with far more than a handful with no performance issues.

They're both making an ssh connection and running a simple command. Resource consumption and the difference between them is negligible at best.

Without reviewing your actual source code, I still don't understand how it can be any safer...
