I most certainly think it's worth taking another try, although I would recommend to make some solid preparation - gather the strongest arguments in favor of having the code released and articulate them properly, write up a rich description of how exactly the code would be used, under what conditions and limits in regard to exploitation of the Level Editor and the game engine - before even asking about anything. I mean, they have a very solid argument against giving the code to anyone - once they do that there's no way to control its use, which poses a risk of violations of any conditions they could set up. As much as they would probably not care that much anymore, there could still be legal issues involved. I bet any sort of 'open source' is completely out of question, it would have to be some sort of exclusive agreement - and unlikely a mutual one.

Nevertheless - we'll never know unless we try.
