Sure, and I'm arguing that because you're distributing only object or
executable code, not source, Section 3 applies. It's the only
permision grant that specifically covers what you are distributing, so
it trumps the other clauses.

I'm fairly confident that this is similar to Eben Moglen's
interpretation of the license, but perhaps you should ask him to
clarify it for you?
