can someone explain these license problems in perfectly good
fuzzy american words, complete with adjectives and interjections; perhaps limited to only 3 conjunctions for me?

1) The GPL doesn't allow a GPL and a not-GPL-compatible code unit to be intimately linked together. 2) It might be argued that the basic dependance and interconnection of a not-GPL-compatible plug-in with the GPL GIMP core via libgimp and the wire protocol is intimate enough that the two cannot be considered independent and separate works. (Yeah, really.) 3) This checkin makes our intention clear, as those imposing the license, that 2) is really not a problem.
