BTW, I can imagine writing a version of (BSD licensed!) that will
execute different shared libraries as separate processes, and will NOT
link them in the same address space with the application in question
(i.e. GnuPG).

So the "procedure call" will call to a stub in the BSD licensed
which will just "pass a message" to the real shared library and return a
result code to the application.

Thing like this would forever end this GPL madness about what is
"derivative work".
