Is it OK under GPL to release a GPL plug-in for a program that is under a license that is not compatible with GPL? E.g., could you release a GPL plug-in for Word?
If there are two libraries that perform the same functions, but with different interfaces, and one library is under GPL, and the other is under a GPL-incompatible license, is it OK to distribute code that can be compiled to use either library? You would not be distributing either library--just your code, and telling the user to obtain (if they don't already have it) whichever library they prefer, and compile for that.
Would it be OK for Comcast to use GPL code in their DVR? Note that their DVR stops functioning if you are not hooked up to their system or your account is not in good standing.
