in reply to obfuscating source code

Would it make sense for you to ship only the 80% of your project that has no license issues and have the users get the tainted modules by themselves from the processing networks? Is it possible to structure your code so that it contains stubs that can easily be made to work by dropping in some binary libraries or code obtainable from the processors?

That way, you can get all your higher-layer features "out of the door" and get some response from potential users. If your project gets popular, and some of the processors allow shipping (thus making it easier for the clients to work with), the others might change their licensing agreements, too.
