 Basically, if a customer of yours wanted to use pyfoo to create a Python
application using libfoo which is distributed under terms other than the
GPL, that customer of yours would need both a license from you and a license
from the author of libfoo.

 Now, you could enter an agreement with the libfoo author so that you can
sell directly pyfoo+libfoo licenses...
