You don't get if you don't ask.
In other words, ask them for it. The difference between an internal
and a public release is whether there is a perceived market for the
thing or not.
It's not like they have additional porting effort, and it's not like
they don't already have to support it internally, so it's almost
zero work for them to do a release -- if there's a market.
