I didn't know it was so costly.  The minimum subscription option (EDN
license) is $1500 per year but that comes with SDE (as ArcGIS Server I
believe) : http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/edn/pricing.html.  I
wouldn't want OSGeo to support that and there's probably no hope of
getting a freebie from ESRI.

Thanx for your comments.
