It turns out that the response in cases like that is one of two things:

 1. we'll pay up and get the licenses current
 2. we can do without it

Though, my understanding is that at state and local levels
(universities, community colleges, etc) the idea of using free software
alternatives is much more accepted.  Where I did my undergrad, GSView
was on every windows machine on campus, just to point out one instance.
