OK, so the big problem is Script-Fu because it's fairly embedded and it's
somewhat hairy. The ordinary plugins aren't much of a problem, in the very
worst case they can be removed from the distribution temporarily.
Surely the #1 thing someone should be doing (preferably someone who actually
knows about Script-Fu) is to contact the copyright holders for the
"obnoxiously licensed" Script-Fu code and ask them very politely if they
would let us include that code in some GPL software, with proper credits
of course, but without the unacceptable license terms ?
Please someone figure out who to contact, mail them and CC the list.
