Er. You made it interactive; now it's interactive but doesn't normally
print such an announcement, so the exemption kicks in. Are we talking
about a licensing race condition here?
If that were the case, we'd be forced to put GPL blurbs in anything that
made use of any GPL libraries at all, eg. Readline.
