To my mind (and I may be wrong there), plug-ins are just applications
which depend on the GIMP, and an interface provided by it - so they can
be licenced under any old licence that you might deign to choose. In
much the same way as (say) proprietary Linux applications are just
applications which depend on Linux & interfaces it provides (when
distributed in binary form anyway).

So if one wanted to release a plug-in as a proprietary application (God
knows why you'd want to - I don't believe anyone would pay for a module
to a graphics application), I don't see any GPL issues myself. Am I
