It looks like it has some nice features including only downloading
only updates instead of all the data and a nice systematic way of
downloading decay information (which is new I think).

The one thing I am trying to figure out how it works is downloading
updates when one has multiple clients. Is the last login stored on the
server or on the client? Will I need to create separate accounts for
each piece of software or merely maintain a cookie file?

On a related note, how widely available is space-track data? I realize
amsat, celestrak, and others have agreements to redistribute data. But
what do the restrictions to non-US persons look like?
