Don't have any problem at all with source code being released and - yes - this is good news for the CyanogenMod boys.
What annoys me - and leads to public spleen venting - is the assumption, sometimes questioned by El Reg, never by its readers, that because Google releases source code it must, by that very fact, be a lovely company that will never to harm to a soul and that its motives are pure.
Source code is good. Freely accessible source code is better. Assuming that, just because you've been granted that free access, the company behind the largesse is an ethical one is downright dim. But that's what a lot of folk here seem to believe, if their "Google hate spin" comments are anything to judge.
