Windows Live Writer - Movement towards Open Source?

I almost missed this tidbit from overseas in my RSS feeds:

Wird der Windows Live Writer Open Source? - Caschy’s Blog (German)

Here is the Google Translate page: Google Translate

In in, Scott Hanselman was observed tweeting involvement in talks to possibly open-source the code for Windows Live Writer.

I love WLW, and it does still get incremental updates from Microsoft from time to time if you can catch them, but there are a lot of little nuisances that need cleaning up (IMHO) and it is exciting to think what some crafty developers could do with the code.

Fingers crossed!
