After asking for verification, if that is the case, the tech support answer claimed it is going to happen, and that it's supposed to happen "in nearest future". Now, this probably only means the client (underlying protocol will probably be handled by a binary-only library), but even if that's the case, seems like there is still reason to celebrate.
We can found no scientific discipline, nor a healthy profession on the
technical mistakes of the Department of Defense and IBM.
