If you go to "downloads" on top of that page, the sourecode for Gingerbread Xperia (Arc AND Play) are there, the one you link is not Arc. Seems all Xperia (new) is compiled from same source.

was this before or after the source for the arc was released?

they might have just compiled from source.... sadly, the play doesn't have it's source out yet

EDIT:x10/ or arc
