But is in no way binding on anyone other than Harald.

This is the GPL, sadly. Nobody can give you a straight answer, and if they  
could, the straight answer wouldn't make much objective sense.

I suspect that you will probably get away with what you are proposing to  
do, as most people would usually get away with doing more or less anything  
with GPL code as long as you don't shout about it. I have long worked on  
the basis that the GPL, like most sorts of duplication control law, is  
only tolerated because it is very rarely enforced.
