Background: Corion told me in the chatterbox a while ago that the hurdle to publishing the source is that there are sec vulns lurking. He proposed that it needs some auditing first. I have the feeling that's never going to happen.
I realise that just forgoing goobs of code is extremely foolish, yet a clean slate is also a chance to execute on new features of which tye said earlier attempt did not follow through - no wonder, the hurdles to entry are just too high as is.
Even if my idea never bears fruits, a downloadable copy is still valuable for institutions like Archive Team or as a safe-guard against Pair, PM's generous host, turning neglectful or evil.
