Hey, that’s unfair.

* A guy asks the list for help in debugging their personal, private
use piece of code.
* You come and suggest that they publish it as a package.
* They do, and then you start insisting that package has to be
compatible with the Emacs license.

Basically you tricked the OP into publishing their code and are
bullying them into releasing that code under a Free license.

As published, the code does not work. You cannot use it, therefore you
are not its User as defined by GPL. As you are not its user, you do
not have the rights that the GPL grants to users. Problem solved.
