I'll provide my support in this.

Several questions:

1) What kind of license will SE be provided under?
2) Will it be a binary only or also include a source code release?
   I'd really like to see SE's source code be available, but if
   Quest is paying for it, then it's understandable that they'd
   want to keep it private.  However, there could be large
   benefits to making it public.
3) If the source it made public, what license would it be under?
