No. <grin>

My understanding (which may be wrong!) is that 'View management screens'
gives one permission (by convention?) to use 'manage_' methods.  *Which*
manage methods you can use (or even see on the management tabs) is
controlled by other permissions.  So if such an auxiliarry permission
for viewing the contents doesn't exist, it probably would be
useful to create it.  But I don't think view management screens
should automatically give you access to the source code.
