If you read the forum link in my original post, you'll see that your 
comparison has been refuted as invalid.  He wasn't packaging anything.  
It's like saying all linux software must be GPL because it's running on 
linux.

The use of the code was almost secondary - the impression I got was that 
he was being forced to go GPL despite using wordpress code. That's my 
impression anyway.
