Open-Sourcing Proprietary Software

I’m sure that at least some of us have an app or some other program that is proprietary, that we wish was open-sourced. What I’m wondering, is is there a good way to approach a developer about open-sourcing their code?

The reason I bring this up, is it almost seems a little rude to do something like this. But, it may be a great improvement to quite a lot of software out there in some way, shape, or form.
