what do the terms of the ECW license actually say? Is *any* redistribution
allowed or do you have to specifically register with ER Mapper* for each
installation?  (* now owned by ERDAS)

SDK download page:  http://ermapper.com/Downloads.aspx?v=315
I assume you have to register to see their current terms. (?)

or can the old GPL-friendlier version (from before the company was sold)
be redistributed while the latest version can't be? Is the old version
crippled WRT maximum image size?

Is the idea that a non-free package be prepared which asks for the
location of the downloaded code, and compiles, packages, & installs the
plugin lib on the local machine?
