Neither do I understand that. Werner didn't give a single plausible
argument except possibly of license incompatibility. But in my
understanding, just incorporating PKCS#11 support into GnuPG would NOT
cause license incompatibility. It would happen at run-time if the user
chooses to load GPL-incompatible binary PKCS#11 driver (which most of
them are).
