Yes, all of the C/Objective-C for starting up the VM and running your application, as well as the ant task for assembling the app bundle is being open-sourced. The 'deploy' repository also has the DeployToolkit and Java launcher additions so your app works properly on older JREs.

Now that JavaFX will be included with the JRE, the wrappers may no longer be necessary, but one step at a time.

I have to check on something with the deploy team but we should be able to sort it out pretty quickly.
