There may be a problem with packaging that up.  The License says, in part:
+ GRANT. AS grants you (hereafter, Licensee) a non-exclusive license to use
+ the Software free of charge provided that:
+ (a) you are a student, faculty member or staff member of an educational
+     and you use the Software for non-commercial purposes only;
+ -or-
+ (b) your use of the Software is for the purpose of evaluating whether to
+     purchase a commercial version of the Software. The evaluation period
+     is limited to 60 days.
and it goes on to say:
+ RESTRICTED USE.  You may not copy the Software, except for backup or
+ archival purposes.  Any such copy made by you shall be subject to this
+ Agreement and shall contain all of AS's notices regarding copyrights,
+ trademarks and other proprietary rights as contained in the Software
+ originally provided to you.  You may not lend, rent, lease or
+ otherwise transfer the Software.  The Software is protected by the
+ copyright laws and copyright treaties.

The commercial version sells for $149, $30 for manuals, $20 for shipping.
A site license is $4300.
