both sound accurate

correct, I can license a script however I like.  HOWEVER, if I do
'import foo' and foo falls under the python 2.0 license this may cause issues. 
Which basically means GPL'ed python scripts may have problems.  Just like a GPL
C app linking a non-free library.

python 1.52 was not gpl, it was essentially BSD.
