I understand the need for open-source software.  Especially when it comes to re-usable code libraries.  But seriously? Asking a client-side application to "open up" just proves they don't have sufficient skill available to assess JavaScript-based applications.  It would take a very naive developer to assert that the bulk of Gmail's functionality lies within its JavaScript front-end, considering it is not a thick-client (aka thin server) application.
