Quoting Daniel Arbuckle <djarb at wvc-omak.ctc.edu>:

If this is indeed true, I'd like to see more research regarding this, becouse
I feel that we do indeed need this clause. I see NO REASON why someone can't
release a transport, etc, using our libs that contain proprietary data, and
hence CANNOT be released under GPL..
