That lengthy thread explored possible ways to attempt to circumvent 
LiveCode Community's downstream GPL requirements.  Kevin's comments were 
about attempting to use the GPL version to make non-GPL works.

My proposal here was for a possible dual-license option for those with 
an appropriate license.  Proprietary works can be created with the 
proprietary-licensed editions of LiveCode.
