A GFDL'd document cannot be used in ANY free program.  There is NO
free software license which would allow you to combine a GFDL'd piece,
and have a result which would still be free software.

Other free documentation licenses do NOT generally have this problem.

This has been explained to you enough times that your attempt to
pretend it hasn't can no longer be attributed to ignorance.
