This is exactly what was meant.
Are there any chance that this tools could be released as Open Source ?

I think it match one aspect of the method (fast iterative development) but
there many others principles you can experiment with (Pair programming,
planning games, and so on).

If you want to have more details:

  http://www.extremeprogramming.org

 is a good start.



The Portland Pattern repository (a wiki web) is also full of interesting comments:
