    From developer's link:

    and will be released for free (so we don't get stabbed by lawyers)

    Being released for free doesn't mean much. Even completely free mods for other games, if they impinged on the intellectual property of another company have been taken down through the typical use of cease and desist letters.

    Which means that

    Original SMB levels and Lost levels will be included

    is likely going to bite this guy in the ass, assuming he didn't get permission from Nintendo (which from a lack of mention on the site I doubt he has).

No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.
