When I spoke to them a couple of months ago, the thought then was that the
sources would not be a HUGE cost-- the estimate given was $100 or so, plus
signing a NDA. When you are paying $5000 for a 50-user license, even a
couple of hundred dollars won't keep me from buying source.
I understand the big reason for them to unbundle the source is that it
makes it easier to export overseas.
NOTE: I don't work for them, much less speak for them. Everything here
should be considered unsubstantiated rumor until you talk to your friendly
neighborhood TIS sales rep.
