Can you make a derivative of a GPL'ed work and distribute it among
your four without giving sources to other three? I remember a
discussion about this in RMS's works, but do not remember the
outcome. The situation with LPPL is exactly the same.
The rule of thumb is, I think, this: if in a given situation you
cannot do something a closed derivative of a GPL'ed work, then you
cannot do this with a modified LaTeX without name change.
