     Issue is, that TP is a Pascal dialect, nobody (including standards)
compatible and nowhere standardized. This (missing standards and
compatibility with standards) is especially important, because TP is highly
tied to DOS (and slightly to 16-bit Windows) platform and, thus,
non-portable to newer platforms. I think, this very highly decreases
perspectives of TP (_if_ it will be released as free open-source) to evolve.
If you not expect evolving, then why you need sources?

Using Tomcat but need to do more? Need to support web services, security?
