I would like to see a built in licensing module that can generate keys and a system for maintaining software keys via a server/webserver on the Internet. Sort of an active license manager. Doesnt matter though because im working on this now anyway.

This is an application. It is not the function of a programming tool to provide such functionality. Developers either purchase a third party solution or roll their own method.

Only a small number of users of VDS would want such a feature, because most users are not using VDS to create software to sell commercially. Many shareware developers don't like web server based license management systems because they feel that customers are frightened by applications that "phone home" and could send out personal information. So a number of the potential users of your system may be put off by your proposed implementation.
