Actually, the official line I got is "$150 for each new installation/user 
of Matlab" for faculty/staff only, and that includes all toolboxes Duke 
bought (I'm not sure how big a subset that is) except symbolic math.

And, joy of joys, the new license file no longer requires running FlexLM 
on every damn machine you want to run Matlab on.
