I have some software.  Someone else wants to use my software in their
project, and distribute the result.  I don't want them to be able to
do that unless they distribute their own source and allow others to
redistribute it.

You claim that the GPL doesn't have that effect, because the other
project is merely a "compilation".  So how should I word my licence
to achieve the effect I desire?
