Woohoo.  Looks like they think how I thought they did.

Not that the FSF's opinion is the binding opinion of course, but I think it
would hold a lot of weight.  Anyways, the right to enforce the GPL belongs to
the author(s).  So if Isaac is interested in chasing them, that would go the
furthest for sure (or one of the other developers with Isaac's knowledge as it
is partially their code too).

Of course, if they aren't interested...
