I vaguely recall reading that there is some kind of a licensing "gotcha" in
later versions of MicroFocus Cobol that apparently was not present in earlier

Anyone considering a MF Cobol installation may want to research the licensing
situation carefully.  I don't remember any specifics about it at all, other
than what I have written above.  It may have been resolved, or it may not have
existed in the first place and be simply someone's misunderstanding of the
situation.  But it's worth checking out.
