    I agree that the LGPL would be better, and I think the FSF agrees too
    for this application.

I wouldn't be sad to see GCL under the GPL.

GCL has had its current license for a long time.  Is there any
indication that this license has led proprietary software developers
to contribute substantially to GCL, or even led them to use it in
large numbers?

      In any case, were we to go GPL, I think at the
    minimum we would want to use a proprietary code allowing clause along
    the lines of clisp.

That would not work--it would encounter the same problem as using the
LGPL encounters: namely, that the various libraries and copied code
don't have such an exception.
