This might prevent code non xforms code in xmemos from being reused in other
GPL'd programs, since the authors of those programs may not wish to allow
linking with xforms. See my posting where I worked around this by giving the
user the option of 1. using the special permission, or 2. deleting the
special permission from the license before distributing. 

I don't know if I open any loopholes or create brokenness the way I
described it, but it seems to allow xmemos code that doesn't require xforms
to be resused in programs released under the standard GNU General Public
