I saw no wrong on the licensing. I like their attitude, their pricing model.
Pretty reasonable, even cheap, if one would ask me. Look, this stuff is used
for professional applications, is not easy to write, and the authors deserve
payment. And they are not charging royalties. How could one expect quality,
free, and supported to be in the same product?

Anybody we contract will want to be paid far more than this. The fee is
graduated for different groups,  hobbyist and demo, shareware author, pro.
This stuff is used for the core of applications.

We shouldn't assume that these guys won't make deals - they might be into
creating actual externals for Rev at a very reasonable price - who knows
until you try. Did anyone email these folks?
