   rms said that FSF's attorney said that if I included in Aladdin Ghostscript
   a module that #included the interace to GNU readline, and code that called
   GNU readline, the result of linking the compiled version of this code with
   GNU readline would violate the GPL.

Readline is a special case.

I wrote it, and I had no intentions of restricting it in anyway
whatsoever.

If I find that the restrictions are too severe, I will simply spend
the 3 days it took to write it in the first place, and write it again,
using a better, cleaner interface.
