  Well, Gnash is also a GNU project, so the copyright for the External
Interface code is owned by the FSF. I believe you'd need to ask RMS or
Eben for a real opinion. The decision isn't really up to the Gnash team,
or even myself, who wrote the External Interface code, because of this.
Because Gnash is not a library, the GPLv3 has been fine.
