This goes to the debates that have been had about GPLd libraries. where the dynamic linking happens on the user's machine. Might relate to Oracle v. Google and copyrighting interfaces.

I hope that FTP-master agrees. They've been okay with the ATI and nVidia drivers being shipped this way for a rather long time so there is hope.
