The source is public - I don't know of anyone who has reviewed the top
to bottom stack. Nathan and his team are generally quite clueful, so I
think it has a good chance of being quite reasonable. I have used it and
recently I was talking with the lead developer, Lee, in Brazil about how
to improve the bootstrapping of identifiers (number, login, etc) process.
I think there is a lot of possibility with OSTN.
All the best,
