    Of course you don't mean that all the GPL code out there under version
    2 should be regarded as dead. You mean only for the purposes of
    incorporating that code into Emacs, correct?

Yes.   We were discussing Emacs Lisp libraries.
You will notice that I said "If a library..."

There are people who want to make me look bad, and don't mind if the
means are dishonest.  Perhaps because Microsoft pays them -- it was
caught doing this a couple of months ago -- or perhaps they get their
kicks from mistreating people.

Whoever quoted it out of context might be one of them, in which
case you should put him down as someone to ignore.  However, that person
might be honest and have been misled by others.  If so, you could perhaps
help him see what is happening and stop it.
