It would be free as in w/ source, probably BSD rather than GPL but some
license you'd like. About the only thing we'd need to worry about is
our commercial customers taking this and using it as a way to not pay
for some seats so there is some chance that we'd want to put in some
hook there, I'd have to think about that before promising anything.

I'm curious as to why you would think this is better than the CVS gateway.
The CVS gateway is actually a really nice thing. The whiners think we
have somehow hamstrung the data in the gateway but that's only because
they haven't looked at the data, if they had done a careful comparison
then they'd know it's all in there.

So what's the attraction? Having a client that will work with any BK
server? Do you realize that the client is just a way to get at the head?
And tagged releases? It doesn't have 1/10th the functionality of BK itself.
