I take it you've never used Cydia, then... Or if you have, you're blithely unaware of the effort that has gone into making a system of Cydia's quality and more importantly, stability and compatibility without the support of... er... I mean whilst actively opposing the will of Apple.
Yes, Rock was fast and rather slick and Cydia could definitely learn a thing or to about HID from them, but it was fast because (IIHMFS) it used some rather dodgy cacheing methods and bypassed various checks.
Don't quote me on this, but Rock also used some extensions (Rock extensions) that occasionally caused conflicts and duplicated much of the work of Mobile Substrate.. Although, I didn't personally experience any conflicts.
So, I wouldn't say that Cydia is piggybacking someone else's effort, on the contrary, Rock inherited your Cydia settings and was hence populated with the same packages anyway.
I will miss the speed and the slick, professional interface, though.... Going back to Cydia is a real PITA in terms of speed, but I do support the idea of all the - rather limited - jailbreak programmers being on the same boat.
So, in a word, "No."
Jailbreaking isn't about sticking it to the man. That's what men with small dicks and too much time do.... so to speak... Jailbreaking is about packing your device with all sorts of great tools that aren't available on the official store, as simply and efficiently as possible, to get the job done.
If you want to stick it to the man, why don't you install Android and post about it on Blogger.
