So I'm right. Using the GPL code does 'spoil' the project. I know I
HAVE to use the code, it's my choice (you keep getting hung up on
my "automatic", etc. phrasings!!!!), but I don't understand the
for MAKING THE LICENSE THAT WAY, why it demands the original
code become GNU ***and be USELESS for non-GNU projects without
making them GNU***. It's that last part in asterisks that I hate. The
distribution of said combined work should have NO BEARING on
ANY other works that have NO 3rd-party code in them but are based
on ORIGINAL code from the combined work!
