Thanks. I stand corrected.

However, presumably for many programs licensed under GPL v.3 there
will be a number of associated non-executable files (e.g. under /etc)
for which read permissions need to remain in place. If you have a
GPLed package, I'm not sure what the implications are of "conveying"
the non-executable files while merely "propagating" (without
conveying) the binaries.
