Join the group of people who have asked the FSF opinion on this, doing
anything else is just wasting electrons..

The only legal reading I have heard of it (not from RH) was that the GPL
only really covers that a binary given will be given source code. It
doesnt say that a person cant put addition restrictions on the binary..
only that it cant put restrictions on the distribution of the source
