Windows Phone 7 Unlocker Released

Exciting news for this Thanksgiving weekend! XDA moderator imfloflo let us know about this information coming from the site ChevronWP7, where we can find that now is possible for anyone to unlock a Windows Phone 7 device without a Marketplace developer account. According to the source, the unlocking process allows the side loading of experimental applications that otherwise can’t be published to the Marketplace, such as those which access private or native APIs. The process is described as very easy, just having a WP7 device and a USB cable to connect your computer with XP Service Pack 2 and later.
As this is the first release, you can expect some bugs, some members are having problems to unlock but others have done it. Please read the entire information before proceeding to avoid unwanted behavior.
Last minute information: According to the site where this unlocked has been spotted:

We do not condone piracy.
We are all app developers ourselves and value the financial incentives of app development.
We will not help or support efforts to pirate WP7 applications
Our intention is to enable and create WP7 homebrew applications that cannot be submitted to the Marketplace in the first place.
ChevronWP7 is not an enabler for piracy
Our tool only enables functionality inside every Windows Phone 7 device designed and implemented by Microsoft. We do not make any modifications to the operating system.
Unlocking and piracy are mutually exclusive
All Marketplace application XAP packages are sufficiently protected so that you cannot sideload to run them on any unlocked device (official or with our tool). We have no intentions or knowledge to break that protection.
(You can still run legitimately purchased and downloaded applications after unlocking)
