I'm not entirely certain the source for it *is* open. Evidently it was part of the installer and was never opened up. I'm a little dismayed about this -- I never realized this to be the case, although admittedly there are distributions which make no use of sysidtool at all.
I'm not sure where the sysidcfg code lives (Will have to have a rummage) but I've never liked the way any of it works and I'm sure I'm not alone.
We (OpenIndiana) may want to adopt the approach OmniOS took which is to get rid of it and use something much simpler. If the OmniOS approach is sufficiently good enough for most people then we could just import it. I imagine adding compatibility with the sysidcfg file would be pretty trivial if anyone really cared about it.
