I never viewed it as too good to be true, just as a good value.
I'm afraid I still don't see what the issue was with the original "developers license" issue (other than lawyer paranoia or a lawyer not understanding how to craft a software license). I and (it seems) everyone else who read the "developers license" seemed to understand it. That is, you can use the solution pack as a basis for a system to deploy on a website you were developing for someone. You could not resell it in any other form.
In this sense, that original developers license is indistinguishable from the current license. It's just that now the scope has been decreased to "you can only deploy it on one website you are developing, but you can not resell it in any other form". For me, that license does not make the solution pack a good value any more - but that is just me.
I think the original developers license was reasonable because it is indeed possible to put together your own "solution pack" or "template" using the excellent WebAssist software. The solution pack was WebAssist doing that with their deep in-house experience and expertise in their tools, packaging it in a distributable form and thus saving me a lot of time. That is what I was willing to pay for.
