This never got answered to the list. The VRML spec does say:
" SGI has publicly stated that the
file format is available for use in the open market, and have contributed a
file format parser into the public domain to bootstrap VRML viewer

That does not exactly say source, but it implies it.

Certainly bootstrapping VRML development would be greatly aided by
releasing source.

Anyone have news on this?

Once the parser is out there we will need test files and a JPEG (or GIF2)
Does the AllNodes.vrm file that comes with QvLib draw a picture at all?
