How much is the CTL licence a real stumbling block? I can appreciate it's not ideal - AIUI, it's not properly open-source, and contributions are something of a hostage to fortune if CTL changes its mind or goes under. But given the commercial realities of the RISC OS community, I wonder if expecting the licence situation to change is hoping for too much? It seems to be functioning pretty well at the moment, despite the (no doubt well-founded) worries of potential developers used to a less restrictive environment.
