not if the changes are not kept proprietary and sent upstream sooner or

perhaps but the real question is why isn't this a branch in CVS? Why is there a need for clandestine development?

Take Nautius-search as an example, Novell did this right by having a branch which the maintainers could see, change and adapt. The result was a hugely successful merge.

Also Davyd is right to a point - remember how NT swept aside Unix because they would not unite?

Lets not repeat history - united we stand (and succeed), divided we fall!
