OK. My understanding was that the point of having the code in escrow
would be so that you wouldn't have to just rely on a legal obligation of
the other party (as said party might not even be around to sue anymore N
years in the future). I don't see what escrow adds on top of the legal
obligation in what you describe, but maybe I'm misunderstanding the
Good point! I will think about this.
