    >Just how difficult is it to change the inclination of an orbit?
    
    It takes energy.  I believe that the most economical (energy/fuel)
    place to make inclination changes is at the equator.  Not familiar
    with ion engines but if you can wait...many burns at the equator
    probably could make significant inclination changes.
