It is much simpler, it does only one thing - boots system from CD.

I have been told that Wubi already contains such option and that it is
mature enough that it will be integrated into Gutsy. So I guess this
makes it obsolete.

It can of course be used in other use cases, installer doesn't care what
it boots from CD. And it is small enough to fit anywhere, if such
heavyweight solution as Wubi is not needed :)
