I'd like to point out that, personally, I think there's no strategic value
in keeping any code behind closed doors.
This is actually the first reason why I'm refusing jobs.
Especially frustrating when potential employers are public bodies,
funded in turn by citizens, and wasting their money on proprietary
software licenses rather than public, open doors, development.

Of course it depends on what your strategy is aimed at.
Sharing, IMHO, makes everyone richer.
