No problem, except I get to nitpick back. :)

I intend to make it GPL so this is all moot. However, please note that
the GPL viral provisions are triggered by *distribution* of binary or
source code. If I never distribute the binaries to anyone, then my code
is not licensed under GPL. I guess since I've sent you a copy of the
binary, that version of the code is already GPL. However, I've been
improving it a lot since then also.

Anyway, this is not an issue.
