How much would the Permies Forum Software cost for someone to purchase who wanted to use it to set up their own forum?

I'm involved with a couple of groups that have a strong need for a proper forum platform, and this platform was my first thought. One's using a Facebook group, and the other a Slack channel.

I recognize I'm making some assumptions here;
- it's actually for sale,
- the software is actually portable;
- the software is one big monolithic thing, instead of a bunch of smaller interacting pieces
- the group is willing to pay a fair price to majorly improve something they're accustomed to getting for free
- And probably others I'm unaware of

But still, I'd like to pose the question, and see how possible this is.  Thanks!

Man, you're awesome, Paul.

I'll hop over there to try to solve my follow-up questions.
