 From the olpc-uruguay list in an unrelated thread:

"Si utilizamos las claves de desarrollador (que son las que permiten 
hacer cualquier cosa en la maquina), pero al momento solo se entregan 
por solicitudes puntuales (proyectos de grado por ejemplo)." - Ing. 
Daniel Castelo - Plan Ceibal - Área Técnica
Rough translation:
/"We do use developer keys (the ones that allow you to do anything with 
the machine), but at the moment they are only given for specific 
requests (like for example thesis projects)." - Eng Daniel Castelo - 
Plan Ceibal - Technical Area

I know its not official but its a pretty clear indication that developer 
keys are not available to everyone.
This makes Yama's concerns valid and important, I think.
Since the board will probably meet in UY next month, this should be an 
item in our agenda.
