I'm pretty darned sure that except for the low-level drivers for the display and the buttons, it *WAS* used as distributed. And I'm also willing to believe that whatever code has gone into Boo Reader is probably completely developed in-house by Bookeen - with probable reference to Mobi's reference SDK.
