At the risk of being curmudgeonly, I'm not sure I agree with this - the
folks who have acknowledgements there currently all provided free copies of
their compilers (that were/are not generally available) to aid with Boost
testing. RenderX hasn't actually given us anything that isn't freely
downloadable anyway. If they let us have a copy of the commercial version
of the product - so we could produce advert free docs - that would be a
different issue.

Just my 2c worth...
