[ Please people, use descriptive subjects. ]

One thing that's not clear to me is:
assuming we add some XEmacs-style dynamic loader to Emacs (probably
with some kind of dynamic GPL-check for good measure), would it be legal
for someone to distribute a non-GPL module?

IIUC, this is a question related to the distribution of non-GPL Elisp
packages (which I thought was illegal but recently Richard mentioned he
wasn't sure and he was waiting for legal advice about it), and maybe
also to the precedent of the GMP-2.0 library.

Can anyone enlighten me?
