One doesn't need a license to create and use private derivative 
works (adaptations) of GPL'd software. 17 USC 117. So what is 
your (and your fellow comrade GNUtian ams) point?

"The conversion of a program from one higher-level language to
another to facilitate use would fall within this right, as
would the right to add features to the program that were not
present at the time of rightful acquisition. These rights would
necessarily be more private in nature than the right to load a
program by copying it and could only be exercised so long as
they did not harm the interests of the copyright proprietor.
Unlike the exact copies authorized as described above, this
right of adaptation could not be conveyed to others along with
the licensed or owned program without the express authorization
of the owner of the copyright in the original work. "
