I worked for a guy in 1988 that was a WP for VMS reseller.  I remember
one particular sale of 10-12 seat licenses for which the commission
made his entire year.  Unfortunately I have no information on how the
licensing worked.  There was, IIRC, a bit of paper in the box with the
key information on it but I have no idea how it worked.
