I don't think the site exclusive to open source languages, but are 
supportive of them. Krugle itself was designed using open source 
technologies. Code snippets -can be- open source (when placed into the 
public domain) even if written in a commercial language. Therefore, I 
believe xtalks should be generally supported. This is how they describe 
the krugle search engine: "Unlike conventional search engines, Krugle is 
designed to locate code. Krugle supports code search by crawling, parsing 
and indexing code found in all open source repositories, as well as code 
that exists in archives, mailing lists, blogs, and web pages."

See, they mention mailing lists. Aren't we a mailing list? It looks like 
it should be able to index our list if they only had an xtalk category.
