Disallowed in 3.1(a):
# you agree: ... to distribute the Redistributables only ... in
# conjunction with and as a part of a software application
# product developed by you that adds significant and primary
# functionality to the Redistributables
> Unless the EULA contains specific language to forbid such multi-stage
> open-ended redistribution, I'd say you can just re-redistribute away.
Lawyers think like lawyers much better than developers do.
