So you are saying that there is nothing stopping linking of the entire GNU compiler source code via Perl, and then the releasing of a closed source code generator?
Here is a mail from joe buck from the GCC mailling list:
"I'm afraid that's exactly what RMS is extremely worried about:
specifically, that proposed changes make it easier for *proprietary*
tools to use the gcc front ends or back ends."
So GPL/PAL co-linkage allows for the turning over of the entire GPL.
