I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think it is.

Actually, I don't think it could possibly be, if only, for licences
issues. In fact, Quebs people modified KDE and XFCE, and are
redistributing those changes in their product/project, available for
download to everyone.

As per my understanding of GPL and of other OS licenses, this, in many
cases, mean calls for the modified sources to be available, and, as a
matter of fact, I think they are. *I think* that some of the work
they've done on Windows is closed, but I'm quite sure their
modifications to Xen, Linux, and to the various bits and pieces of X
server, display managers and desktop environments are all public.

I may be wrong, but I'd at least have a look, if I were you. :-)
