I ought to just reiterate that this isn't technically open source, although the source code is out in the open for the public to use. The strict definition of open source doesn't allow dual licences, whereas what we're doing at ROOL does - commercial users have to pay a royalty. That's why we're using the term "shared source" on the web site.
