could you point out the specific part of the gpl3 that defines this?

concluding, even if this were true (probably is if stallman says so), a little 
bit of tivoization protection, is better than none.

also we have not a lot of options here, only gpl2 or gpl3. relicensing to 
another license or even modifying either gpl would need all past contributors 
to agree. nobody could gather all of these.
