YOU KEEP MISINTERPRETING MY WORDS!!!! By "automatic" I mean the
license requires it. It requires that if you make a combined work, you
have to GPL the entire combined work. It requires that if, after doing
you take some code from your original portions of that combined work
and use them in other original works those ALSO have to become
GPL as well, essentially rendering the original code you put in the
combined work worthless for non-GPL projects. Am I right on that?
