Yes, I do. My point was that the "dead platform" thing did not make any
sense (even if you ignore that BeOS is not really dead).

I asked it almost one year ago. Never asked again (as I was in waiting
mode). The onl reason I am saying this now (and I am not even complaining)
is that the subject came up.
Also, I would not need access to their entire source code. Only
the rendering engine and the network layer (actually, I would need to
check only the BeOS specific bits of that code).
