lemur2,

"So the only sane conclusion from this observation is that whatever the FSF might believe in this scenario is DOUBLY irrelevant."


I didn't mean to imply the FSF has any say over EKOPath. If PathScale took the same stance as the FSF but uses the GPL without exceptions, it could be their intent that the open source EKOPath should only be used for GPL code.

I agree it sounds ridiculous, but your earlier post made it sound like you weren't aware of the exceptions for GCC, which is why I brought them up.
