  Worry about it in five months.  Franz Inc are not going to cut off
  the Trial Edition, they just want you to use the latest version of
  their product.  ACL 6.0 Trial came out a few days before ACL 5.0.1
  Trial was set to die.  They'll keep doing this, hopefully with a
  little more overlap so porting code can be smoother for those who
  want to see the differences between the versions, but the _worst_
  that'll happen is that they'll scare the bejeezus out of you by
  having broken some standard behavior that you relied on, until you
  read the readme file to figure how to reduce your blood pressure.

  Does anyone remember where I parked Air Force One?
