"Light at the End of the Tunnel" for APB?

Massively notes that the automatic patch utility for All Points Bulletin offers an interesting update about the defunct MMOFPS today, saying: "It's looking like there might be light at the end of the tunnel for APB. The end of the administration process is apparently close and there appears to be a buyer for the game." They also point out this was retweeted by Ben Bateman, and later note that he now works for Codemasters, prompting them to speculate that the game might now be in the hands of Codies. Bateman later tweets a clarification suggesting that this is not the case, using his 140 characters or less to say: "I now work for Codemasters so I'm out of the loop. I didn't update the patch notes. Only the admins can confirm anything."

If they made it F2P and miraculously fixed it (without screwing it up even worse, which was the direction it was rapidly heading) and my old Clan leader was able to "get the band back together" so-to-speak...I'd play.

...At the very least I'd probably log back in long enough to take screenies of my avatars and vehicles. The customization system was the only thing that worked beyond all expectations.
