Thomas said he won't look into GPL'ed code for ideas.
Well, I re-read GPL and found that it's up to author whether is to allow or not
to use code for using in programs with another open-source license. So this isn't
a problem - you may use my program and include code to your without limitations.
I even would prefer to change license to BSD or similar
but I didn't find in GPL ideas about that.
