Sounds good.

I am not surprised. As I believe this is a company effort, I think
somebody got time to work on release a 2.3.4 version with the new
licensing. After that of course he got a new assignment. That is exactly
why I think it might be interesting to have community support as well.

Indeed. I think the examples in the source package are good for now as
any user can install a source package (not just root). Maybe mentioning
something along those lines in a README file somewhere in one of our
packages does not hurt though. I.e. that example code is available.
