A better analogy might be if that cdrom automatically went over to the next CD
and played a track from it mid-song. Could the copyright holders of the next
CD have any control over you selling a CD that does that? 

As someone pointed out, this would prohibit you from running perl from bash,
or running bash from a non-GPL x-terminal or any GPL program on a 
proprietary X server. Those would be the same sort of aggretion as get_it 
calling dpkg.
