You might even be right, but at the moment there are many attorneys less 
sanguine than you on this issue, and /much/ less emotional.

The prudent consultant advises his customers on how to stay /far/ away 
from these issues, since there is no technical reason they can't do so. 
The prudent consultant's goal is not to cast "naah-naah's" at the GPL, 
nor to be an inch over the line on the right side of the law, but so 
clearly in compliance that the prospect of litigation over a GPL 
violation is remote. Again, no technical reason prevents this.
