Embarrassingly, not yet. We had to keep one component of the whole box
closed, until we have a more integrated device, that has more proprietary
hardware. Otherwise, the VC's would rip us a new arse for spending loads
of their money and making it really easy for someone to clone our box &
sell it themselves.
I wouldn't mind, but it's the one bit of the box that kicks ass over
anything else out there, and should be GPL'd ASAP. Not sure when ASAP will
be though. Could be a few months.
