i do use GPL programs too without any problems - because there is 
no BSD licenced equivalent (most often), or BSD licenced equivalent is 
much weaker (rare cases).

but it doesn't change what i said. GPL licence is unacceptable if you want 
to make any commercial product based on code licenced that way.
