There are some problems with that:
- the code isn't available on that webpage
- it changes the mailstore layout, so you cut off yourself if you use 
that instead of the mainstream version
- I guess it is for an older Cyrus, so you cannot easily upgrade

I cannot say anything about its architectural problems, if there are any 
at all.

I don't want to collect money from others which I could send, I just 
popped up the idea to see whether the developers and the users have 
affinity to cooperate in this way.

High availability is a recurring topic on this list, so I guess the 
users would be happy to have it in the standard cyrus distribution.
