If you do really think so, then you should IMHO actually ask yourself if
it is a good idea to release gpg under the terms of the GPL.
GPL means - as far as I understand it - that everyone is free to use the
product for whatever reason one wants. This is also valid for commercial
use and even for creating licensing keys.
Sorry to say that, but GPL means freedom.
