    I agree with Rusty Russell. Anything that we do can be circunvented.

    If they are really into it, they can build a small tool to change the symbol
    information from the module.

    The way I see it, they know a C string ends with a '\0'. This is like saying
    that a English sentence ends with a dot. If they wrote "GPL\0" they are
    effectively saying that the license *is* GPL period.

    So, where the source code? :)
