Your point might clearer if you'd quote relevant material from the
preceding thread, but unfortunately you did not in the post to which I
replied, so I could only go by memory or find relevant prior posts in
the Web archive.

In any event, this is starting to get extremely silly:  A codebase under
GPLv2 with some specific geographic-restriction addendum based on clause
#8 is _not_, in fact, under the same licence as one under GPLv2 without
that additional clause.

Are you entirely done?
