As there is little reason for us not to communicate with the FSF, I
just sent an email to licensing@gnu.org about this.  I'll be curious
if I get a response - and if I'm allowed to publicly quote it.

Interesting times indeed - but there's no need for us to guess what
the FSF thinks - we should be able to ask them!   -- justin
