In the message you replied to, I already wrote:

    I recommend reading <URL:>
    and judging so for yourself.  It states, for example:


    which makes clear the mechanism by which a combined executable to
    be covered as a whole by the GPL is affected by non-GPLed
    libraries.  It is certainly not by the non-GPLed libraries
    suddenly becoming derivatives of any other code.

It is disingenuous to cut away that passage and then protest that I
did not provide anything like it.
