If you are looking at larger scale distribution, perhaps you should
contact REBOL Technologies about your plan and get a real quote. There
is a chance that you may be misinterpreting the idea behind the
licensing scheme. Th price of an email asking them about your specific
ideas is "free"! You may be surprised.
BTW, I still like your version of the pdf generation idea.
