Indeed, isn't that sort of clause the very reason we've refused to allow
other software into Debian?

In any case, I agree with you 100%.  The existing GPL gets this right -- if
you give binaries to anyone, you have to give them the source to -- and
anyone you give any of the code to has to get the same rights under the GPL. 
Makes perfect sense to me.
