It's apparently a very good molecular modeling program, and to be real, my
users tell me that the company that bought the original company wants, and
I'm not making this up, $15k US to generate a license for a new
workstation. And there's two? three? workstations that run it.

And this is a US gov't agency (civilian secrot). Budget? We don' need no
steenkeen budgets, the Magic Hand of the Market will produce all the
results we need.....
