Let's add some patents and maybe some special government legislation
or treaties to the mix, for example -- such that you have a proprietary
function which can be distributed under some license terms which involve
money changing hands, but cannot be distributed under GPL license terms.

How is it not the GPL which is preventing this distribution?
Because the *cause* that is preventing the distribution lies in the governmental restrictions, not in the GPL.
