But no SMP.  Any reason or simply oversite?

Because it's designed to be a bootstrap kernel from which you can build
your own real kernel -- and it has to be as small as possible.  Once you
have this, you can download Anders Brandt Petersen's tarball, chroot
into it, and build a custom amd64 kernel for your box.

I'm working on a new tarball based on all those new packages on Alioth - just need some cleansing and a general kernel :-)

It's done by cdebootstrapping - still a base system and with no known errors.
