If their engine play too well,you would not expect the author to publish the
source code.[Fabien excluded]

If their engine doesnt play well,you may or may not expect the author to publish
the engine code.

I can propose all authors to release the code of engine's first version not the
latest one,so it could leave testers a clue that his engine is not a clone.
probably the first release version doesnt play well.
so far no author has done that.
