30 day trial would not really serve the purpose.  The purpose is to put it
on the LUGOD demo machine (a single installation) so people can see that
they can get a lot of the backward compatibility they might want from it.

What if the student installs it on the demo machine? That would seem to
meet the letter of the license. (http://www.vmware.com/download/eula.html)
