True - but I didn't agree - at least not this time. As I installed Xcode
and command line tools about two hours ago, I don't assume their terms
and conditions have changed since then - so based on my experience with
iTunes, whenever the T&C change, I have to agree before I can download.

So if this is true, there are two options:

1) Apple has changed their T&C after I have installed the update (about
two hours ago) which I think is unlikely, or

2) one doesn't need a developer account anymore for Xcode and
command line tools. I seem to remember that an account was needed for
the iOS emulators.
