the program is actually called 'colony' and it's wrapped in the 
'lunar-tools' package which right now is optional. It is not even 
installed anymore because at the moment the code is broken and appears 
to be broken already since late 2002. Before that I don't have any CVS 
history (the server moved), so anybody willing to dig into the first 
iso's and get me a copy of /usr/sbin/colony would be appreciated.

I am considering a clean rewrite of colony, possibly duplicating some of 
the functionality but have no ideas yet where to start. Most likely it 
will become a purely commandline based tool.

more on this later, I hope ;^)
