Let me clarify that as Paul and others point out, you are in violation
of the letter of the GPL, which requires actual source, not a pointer,
but that's not what I meant.

What I mean here is that you are also in violation of the spirit,
because your pointer no longer points the to Corresponding Source, but
to something else.
