I'm fine with open-sourcing my own stuff and I have been.

The argument is relevant because if the kids access 3rd-party flash
games on the web, they won't have access to the sourcecode.

The VM brings the exact same situation as Apple allowing "unapproved"

If we're talking about OLPC's official policy for apps that will be
distributed in official main builds, there are no arguments about open

Local deployments are free to do with their machines as they want.
