I tend to agree with David Mathog's general view here.
The removal of source code with GCG seems to be a big loss
for the user/manager community of this software package.
I think I understand the economic forces behind this, and respect
the company's move to this. GCG software has been a leader
among bioinformatics packages, and part of that was due to its openness
and accessibility to a manager/developer group of biocomputists.
