How does the Cydia Store handle purchases? What I mean is - I know that with the App Store, any device using my Apple ID can download any given app without having to purchase it again. Is the same true with Cydia, or does each UDID have to show an individual purchase? I have a few paid apps I want to put onto my wife's iPhone, but I don't want to have to purchase them again (primarily because there weren't exactly the 99 cent apps). Anyone have a clue? I mean, if I have to purchase again, so be it, but that kind of sucks.

Depends on the specific app/tweak some are UDID specific while other can be used on multiple devices.

If you bought directly via the Cydia Store, it'll be available there. If it's something paid for outside of Cydia, like BiteSMS, there's a usually license restore mechanism in the app.
