Given the choice of the dual licenses:
   "You can take my software, and use it under the GPL"
   "You can take my software, and use it under something that
    sort of looks like the GPL, but does't allow you to modify
    files foo.c, bar.c, or baz.c in this certain way."
doesn't make too much sense.

Well, legally, maybe it does. But practically, everyone would take the
first license, and just forget the second one.

GPL dual-licensing only works when you want to remove GPL-imposed
