I'm happy to see this if it's true (there is no link) because of the strategy implications. They are remaining on general purpose operating systems rather than bailing on them as some have speculated (i.e. the idea was they would do a RADAR-like product with a hidden OS).

Yes there may have been key people who walked out, which would be disturbing. Everyone's options are probably deep underwater and the view from in there might not be so cheery. But maybe they are just staffing up since the new core architecture has probably settled down and they need more hands to whack bugs.

Regardless of how you read into it. It's a good thing.

They could simply be adding staff for recoding for Snow Leopard too.
