        Actually, since the GPL only covers distribution,
modification, and copying (and explicitly forbits extra limitations on
use or on the above), I believe you can impose restrictions such as
"Every time you use the name of this program in public, you must
include the following URL..." or the (ex)BSD advertising clause.

((lambda (x) (list x (list (quote quote) x)))
(quote (lambda (x) (list x (list (quote quote) x)))))
