According to that page:

Tritium is a tiling/tabbed window manager for the X Window System inspired by the ion window manager. It was written completely from scratch in python and shares no actual code with ion.


This is a shame. A true fork of Ion with the removed/rejected features (e.g. Xinerama support, fonts) added in by default, plus a publicly available source repository (Ion's one has been withdrawn), would be very useful.
