I wasn’t sure, and was hoping to see yet another occasion to show a 
distinction between free and open-source philosophy.  The only case where 
SSPL obligates the (non-end) user to do something, is actually in the 
interest of the end-user… “if it’s the same service, publish everything”…

That may be very wise.  But I’m not sure…

What if such a thing was used for a GCC LSP-server? THAT would be 
extreeemely useful, and was never done because proprietary software is so 
ubiquitous that it would benefit proprietary software… because currently 
dynamic linkage between gcc and emacs would be fine because it would force 
both to be free, while the *same usage* using a binary-agnostic protocol 
would not spread the GPL…  to me it seems non-technical, and it’s 
preventing technical integration between GNU software so…
