Unfortunately, very few developers have the option of being a Cygnus
customer.  I was recently shocked to learn that the minimum package is
for 5 developers - $7500.  For small shops like mine that's totally
absurd (I'm the only fulltime developer).  Maybe you could suggest to
management that singles for 1500-2000 would broaden the market

All the best,
