Hey - now I'm confused. From my understanding of comments Chip
gave me during an earlier theme review, I believe the policy was that any
hosted on the repository had to also be 100% GPL on _any_ site it was
hosted on.
I even understood that the policy extended further than that, actually. I
thought that
everything on a site hosting a repo-hosted theme had to be GPL. And this is
really a
reasonable extension of the whole concept of GPL - for the privilege of
hosted on the WP.org repo, you agree to keep the theme totally in the spirit
of the concept.
