I have to say, this is crazy cool.
Re: a little too immature at this point
There are plenty of cases where BGP or OSPF are not feasible, particularly the case of where you don't control the gateways (such as from a DSL or fixed wireless link).
You're right--it is a very simple piece of software. That is, I hope, its strength. Indeeed, you can do everything it does in Mon or Nagios. But if this is all you actually need it to do, these packages are a good deal more trouble to set up.
Sure, nearly any experienced sys admin could have implemented this. But should he have to? The whole point of free software (other than the sheer joy of sharing) is to save time.
