[development] Modules that integrate non-GPL PHP apps violate the GPL.

Two questions, mercifully brief, for all:

1) Should we escalate this to the Drupal Association to pull in some
lawyerly resources?

I presume the answer is "no" here, as I hear killes in my head saying
"Drupal follows GPL; end of discussion."

2)  How does this affect Edison Wong's (and many others') work on Oracle /
DB2 integration for Drupal core?  Can GPL software invoke data directly from
a non-GPL storage system?
