This should work with EPDFree even if you aren't an EPD subscriber as well.    

The fact that cDecimal isn't in EPD is a good thing for you in this case.  Automatically built PyPI packages are provided to everybody as long as the package itself is not in EPD proper (to avoid our EPD customers getting "automatic" builds of core packages instead of our tested and verified builds).
