It's getting closer.  The directory structures are now the same because
Dave fixed that up a while ago.  But we still have a script which pushes
selected directories to CodePlex.  That won't go away but I'm trying to
make sure that we're not excluding anything which doesn't have a good
reason to be excluded.

It means what you think - other MS employees aren't allowed to look
there w/o talking to a lawyer first.  IronPython, IronRuby, etc... live
in the same source tree as the CLR, Visual Studio, etc...  and our
lawyers just want us to be explicit about where we keep source code
from external sources to avoid taint issues.  Obviously anyone
external can look at whatever they want.  We could probably give this a less
scary name when we push it externally but that's probably more 
complication than it's worth and I might need to talk to a lawyer before
I do that :)
