This alone reminds me of this:


In short (as I understand it), placing software under the GPL with
additional restrictions simply doesn't work.

Are there any more succinct explanations of this?  This problem comes up

explanation (much of it being CUPS-specific, and the dual-licensing stuff
will confuse people).  I can't find anything about this in the GPL FAQ.
