Can you say a bit more about what you had to do to install them? If I  
buy them but I still have to (a) download a separate package, (b)  
figure out where to put the support files in /usr/local/..., (c) run  
updmap-sys multiple times to enable the fonts, (d) run texhash, etc,  
etc, then it's not really worth it to me to buy them. On the other  
hand, if all that is already "baked in" to TeX Live, and all I have  
to do is dump some *.pfb files in ../fonts/lucida (and I guess run  
texhash), or even better, if there's a real install script, then it  
is worth it to me to buy them.
