   You can separately distribute the portion, but it has to be under
   compatible terms (preferably the same) since the only effective form for
   your work to, well, work is to have the combined form.

Actually, it has always to be under the exact same terms.  The GPL
explicitly states that the whole work must be under the same terms as
this [the GPL] license.
