The various legal hurdles and examinations that need to be overcome
just to be able to use 3rd party software on our projects is huge. We
made the choice to go through with it for Boost because we felt if was
important enough for us in our development. However, I would love to
be using the Adobe::forest right now, but that's not an option without
going through the months long struggle of getting another vendor
