Considering that a Mantra site license comes free with Houdini, I'm
not sure SESI would have an incentive to do this :) and I really don't
want to see the site license go away and become a hideously expensive
pay for each CPU like Mental Ray :(

This way, 3rd parties could use mantra as a renderer. If the IFD API was free/open, then it could be paid for via mantra licenses. Are mantra licenses available without Houdini?
