But in reality, this is nothing new. People slap the GPLv2 on
combined works which they cannot legally license this way. There have
been quite a few surprises. I don't think this change is a major
issue for us, we just have to be careful as ever.
To be honest, I can't see any problems with this particular aspect of
the SHING GPL.
