What would are consequence for this type of output vis a vis GPL? e.g.:

| In what cases is the output of a GPL program covered by the GPL too?
|     Only when the program copies part of itself into the output.
See: (URL `http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#WhatCaseIsOutputGPL')

Likewise, for the GFDL?

This technique's ability to provide compiled persistence of symbols
would imply an ability to provide compiled persistence of the symbol's
value as well. Couldn't that have implications when those symbols
carry values for 'code writing code'?

For example, doesn't GNU Bison have "special" licensing consideration
to accommodate similar quandary?
