I've found it - it's in the GPL after all (doh) - the bracketed bit
in:
	"Output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute
	a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by
	running the program). Whether that is true depends on what the
	Program does."

I think that gets someway there.
