I would not mind at all, if Select components were to be open sourced. I paid my subscription money, to keep RISC OS development going. And even if I had spent it to get some features for my own use, it would still be fine if others get the same features for free after some time. Thats the way things have always worked. If someone has never spent a single penny on RISC OS and now buys VRPC-Adjust, they get all the cool features of RISC OS for only 120 pounds, whereas users like me have spent thousands of pounds on RISC OS over the years. For all that money, we had the great pleasure of working with a fine OS for many years, while the new VRPC-owner had to work with less intuitive or efficient tools.
