You'd have to redistribute under the same terms as the original license,
because it's copyleft: that is, GPL+bits.

If you licensed your changes as pure GPL, that obviously wouldn't be
compatible with the original license and that *would* mean that your
modified version becomes basically undistributable. So, you'd have to be
careful about that aspect of it, which I would agree is confusing.
