No, Eli, it's you that don't understand.  Software is free software if
and only if it is distributed under a free software license, by the
definition of "free software license".[1]  Jambunathan's code is
distributed under the GPL, and that is that.

[1]  Except for the corner case of software in the public domain,
which technically speaking is not under license at all, but does give
its recipients the four freedoms in full.
