    The Linux kernel doesn't refuse to boot when it recognizes a non GPL
    module being loaded. It justs informs you its "tainted".

    Emacs should of course just refuse to use functions in modules that are
    not GPL compliant, not just inform the user that the moral integrity of
    Emacs has been corrupted.

I don't think this is a solution, because it would be easy to patch out
the code that enforces that restriction.
