i couldn't be bothered rewriting the same argument, so i'll just cut and
i can take a GFDL document with an invariant section, add another
section which argues against, subverts, or just supplements the
invariant section, AND i can distribute the result as either a new
source tarball with Makefile or build-script etc or as a complete

modify & redistribute non-invariant sections in any way i please.
i can also distribute a "patch file" which contains that additional
