And I explained that your logic only applied to the parts which
were not licensed under the GPL -- not to the parts that are.

Anyways, there's another aspect to the GPL where it imposes a requirement
that modification be restricted.  It requires that the license document
be provided with the licensed program, and forbids modifications to the
license document.
