You miss the point:  if the code works, I don't have to _understand_
it, I just have to _run_ it.  I don't have to reverse engineer
Microsoft Office to open a word document.

And to make it very clear, I'm not talking about Dale, I appreciate
the service he has provided, I wish him the best, he can do as he
pleases with his system and code, and I have no idea what's happening
with the WXSVR situation.  I'm talking about the general question of
closed source services being provided to ham radio.
