What I was getting at earlier was trying to gently point out that you
cannot modify the GPL. It's copyrighted by the FSF. You may only
distribute it verbatim. Ergo, you can't tack anything onto the end, even
if you rename it.. (The copyright permits /nothing/ except verbatim
distribution. This is v2.)
