It's not a question of "skills", it's a question of proprietary
information about patented devices. Those with the knowledge and
ability to do this would still be constrained by NDAs, software
patents, copyrights and other legal problems.
In short, it ain't gonna happen, at least not legally.
But I'd certainly love to be proved wrong, I have an old series-2 in
