I apologize if the answer to this question is obvious; it isn't to

If I use an egg in my code (in the sense of "(require-extension
egg)") but do not modify or redistribute it in any way (i.e. my code
generates a website), and the egg is GPLd, does that infect my code?
I gather there's some provision for linking to GPLd stuff rather
than actually using it as code qua code, but I don't understand it
very well.

I want to start a closed-source, commercial website, so GPL
infection is totally not OK.

Having said that, if anything I do is worth Egging, I'll BSD or PD
it and give it back to the community; I'm not interested in being a
jerk, just interested in being able to make money.  :D
