Minor correction: Canonical has committed to releasing *most* of
launchpad. There are two components, one of which is a fairly
major piece (makes ppas possible), which are not being released.

Amusing to note... Back on July 22, 2008 (at OSCON), Shuttleworth
says "we'll open-source it within the next 12 months", so they're
waiting as long as possible without setting his pants on fire.
