If Peter finally decides NOT to make his lcStackBrowser available to LC
Community Edition Users due to confusion and concern as to whether the GPL
applies then that would be a loss to the Community Users and a few less
sales for Peter.  And as you point out yourself, a healthy libraries,
plug-ins and widgets environment is good not just for users but for Runrev
aswell.

So if the Community Edition GPL dissuades Commercial users from making
stuff for Community users, then that's not taste, that's detrimental.

Yes, clarification would be nice.
