The developers should be able to talk with the devs of the project "JuiceSSH" for Android, on how they implemented it and got around the GPL.

SecureCRT would then formulate the correct connection syntax behind the scenes and initiate a Mosh connection that way itself.

If the user is required to install Mosh themselves first, does that absolve SecureCRT of any licensing issues, or does adding hooks for it at all in your program put you into dangerous waters?

(Conveniently ignoring the possibility of Mosh changing syntax/code one day and completely breaking SecureCRT )
