Exactly, open source.

I do not get it. Ilya already did write that he would extend/update the
warnings/docu.
* It is open source and every user is responsible for himself as this software
comes without warrenty.
* It is warning
* It is no malware

I do not see any reason for deleting the source and wonder that it needs only
one person to delete working code from svn.

Please, undelete it and open up a wider discussion about this issue.

Thanks
