I don't believe you two are having the same conversation.  If you
include other people's GPL'd code into Ardour, you do not then *have*
the right to make that code available to others under a license other
than the GPL, which is what he was talking about.

Ok; that's what he was talking about, and clearly (not that this is any
surprise to *me*, Paul), you're already on that horse.
