I'm a tad too busy for that, but can't help but wonder if Kali Linux doesn't already basically nail everything, and running it in a VirtualBox to hammer whatever you want to test isn't already the go to tool? Not sure. Just curious, as it's where I'd go.

As an aside, if you want to broaden your appeal, even just a little bit, I would cordially advise saving some folk the cocked-eyebrow and subsequent websearch to nail your jargon and let them know you're looking at Penetration Testing .... pentest is cute, but to be honest means little more than grabbing a ball point pen and scribbling on the corner of some scrap paper to see if it works, to much of the world, some of which might rise to your call (as people learning about X are often a great pool of labour for working on tools in X - worse, they tend to duplicate a lot of effort producing tools in parallel).
