I've always found it annoying that the PostgreSQL folks don't supply a fully-populated database with their code, meaning that I have to do my own. Life would be so much easier otherwise!
It might be nice to have a complete game that works out of the box. But having the software and a big pile of artwork seems highly valuable. That should be enough to enable a lot of people who are not programmers to make interesting worlds of their own. I'm not a gamer, but I'm looking forward to seeing what the community comes up with. Without having actually looked at the code, I can only say that this seems like a worthwhile contribution; dissing the whole thing because we didn't get a pony too seems excessive.
