Stef, instead of thanking five times, why don't you try to do
something constructive?

The GPLv3 includes a system of granting Additional Permissions.  This
system has already been used by GCC and Autoconf.  Let's develop a set
of additional permissions that we believe do not "taint" the whole
image.  I placed a starting point at
http://smalltalk.gnu.org/blog/bonzinip/towards-permissive-copyleft-license-dynamic-languages

[To those that followed the entire thread: this is totally independent
of how any GSoC code related to GNU Smalltalk will be licensed].
