I just took another look at it (two years after I first read about it, 
before it was released, as I recall) and am impressed by its progress. 
I'd recommend that anyone interested (like Donnal) visit the link above and 
check out the live online demo.

I can't say just how effective this would be for *story* tracking ala
XP, but as I said almost any bug/issue tracker worth its salt would
be adequate for a start.  Certainly Roundup is significantly more 
polished than our own.
