I suggest there would be  a lot of administrative and political
problems to overcome if we were to do this.  Not least because, the
copyright in GRETL is owned by its respective authors, whereas PSPP's
copyright is owned by the FSF. 

That said, one of the things I'm hoping to improve on is the number of
import/export filters which will allow PSPP to read, write and
otherwise interact with other free software (such as GRETL).

Thanks for the suggestion.
