    I believe the idea was to make it easier for hybrid builders to make better builds, and to stop pretending hybrids are some sort of magically, mysterious thing.
    Anyone can make a hybrid. Yourself included.
    My reasons were a mix of both. It is true that very few people will actually delve into the inner workings of a hybrid, some will. Perhaps for curiosity, perhaps to learn about hybrids, or for the really security conscious to do an audit.

    If hybrid building is open sourced (any hybrid I build would be GPL licensed), it opens it up to a wider audience, and I think that the more people involved, the better they will be. We can learn from each other and build better ones.

    Well... I'm not an attorney yet, and I'm not YOUR (your = anyone who reads this) attorney, so this isn't legal advice... BUT:
    Since you don't own the .cods, or AFAIK even have any authority to use them to make a hybrid, you can't really license a hybrid (that'd be like licensing a lego structure you make).

    My hybrids are kinda like, all the leftover cans of food, that no one really wants to eat...but when you add water, broth, and flour, dump it all in a pot, put some heat on it and stir...nom, nom, nom. It tastes good.
    Wait..we are talking about soup, right??
