The statement "you can use any existing code also licensed under the GPL
and include it into your package" is misleading. This is only possible
if each and every part of the application - including libraries - is
distributed under the GPL. Want to use Qt: Bad luck. Want to use Mozilla
code: Bad luck. Want to use ViaVoice: Bad luck.
