First of all, this isn't *my* argument.  I packaged an GPLed Xform using
program and had it rejected by the ftpmasters for just that reason...

Second, I heard (and I have not verified this and have not gone on any sort
of hunt for these things) that lyx has a special "licensed under GPL but
it's okay to distribute binaries linked with xform" clause... 

I havn't installed/don't use lyx so... <shrug> 

Please cc all mailing list replies to me, also.
