The Future of Reflector is Red Gate

In an interview with Lutz Roeder and James Moore entitled The Future of Reflector, we find out that development of Reflector is being taken over by Red Gate Software.  The promise is that Reflector will continue to be "available for free downloading".  Will source code still be available?  Not discussed in the brief transcript of the interview. 

It will be interesting to see what happens to such a widely-used tool.  How will the community of add-in writers react?  Will there be a hue and cry from the Open Source community at large?
