But don't expect to see the SL Grid server source code released any time soon. "There are a number of things about the architecture of our current server infrastructure that inhibit a source code release. There are a lot of cases of monolithic design and improper trust relationships between components that would need to be addressed."
It looks like they either (a) have legal reasons not to open that code, (b) are insecure about how poorly coded the servers are, or (c) all of the above. Probably c.
