It was written by a TRANGO Virtual Processors product manager, and uses that company's hypervisor as an example."

I know this is off topic but with FUSE, is it possible to use a file system that uses fuse, to run an operating system off it? the reason I ask is it would be a great way to modular-a-lise Linux kernel.

Yes, it is possible to boot using FUSE by adding the fuse kernel module and userspace daemon to your initial ramdisk image.

F.e.: There is a Knoppix derivative that uses httpfs to mount the root filesystem (an ISO image). If I remember correctly, it's called VMKnoppix.
