I'm not a  lawyer so I  won't try to write  down the "correct" wording
(whatever that means) but isn't  it easy enough  to clearly state that
if you modify RPSL-covered code and you *don't* distribute it, you are
not obliged to distribute the corresponding source modifications, too?

That  would solve the "chinese dissident"  problem, at least (not sure
how relevant the "desert island test", because  I agree with something
someone said here,  that  in some  countries, Italy  for  example, you
can't   be   punished  if you  obviously   couldn't   do something law
"normally" enforces you to do).
