But will you be able to study the 500kb of obfuscated perl source

Now, I won't, and I wouldn't want to, either. To be frank, the projects I am working on usually have tight budgets and schedules. It would simply cost too much time to wait for some external company to make the necessary changes to their software to suit our needs. Therefore, I rather rely on open-source software (be it free or commercial) with known code quality to make sure I can meet my deadlines.
