If I'm not mistaken, the "Derivative Works" are defined here as "works 
containing the SDK Source Code", not as original programs making calls 
to GCG libraries. The way I read this section, such original works could 
still be distributed (binaries only?). Am I wrong? 
I guess that EGCG needs an amendment only for those EGCG programs derived
from GCG source code and including parts of it (there are a few in EGCG).
Well, that's the way I see things...
