More valuable, I think, would be if it were possible to release a GPLed
PHP extension that uses these GPLed routines. Would that be disallowed
because PHP's license is not GPL-compatible? Or, since these are
effectively language bindings, would the GPL only extend to PHP scripts
using this PHP extension?
Is there any precedent in the history of Perl modules, for example?
I do remember that the PHP team was not allowed to distribute a
extension that was built on top of GNU readline; but I don't remember
whether this was only because they were unwilling to license that
extension under the GPL.
