 yes, I got the news from OpenWatcom announcement list as well. It's 
definitely interesting, but the way might not be as straightforward 
as it could seem. First, I don't know the exact license conditions 
yet (for this binary patch, that's it - this might be different from 
the final open-source release). Second, we still have to modify the 
compiler first to make Watcom assembler/linker useable.
 Anyway - yes, it's a good news, thanks for it.
