This is true if both programs are his (I read his article the other way).
The GPL is  model license, not a law.  Only the copyright owner can sue for
copyright infringement, and you are not going to sue yourself. 

To the OP: yes, you can do all the stuff you described.  On the other hand,
you could just distribute the combination of your closed source work and
your GPL work under any terms you see fit and be happy.  All the gyrations
are superfluous if you own all the copyrights in the GPL program and
useless if you don't.
