Maybe my worry about a GPL'd build tool 'infecting' my code is all
much ado about nothing...

Zed Shaw wrote a very nice summary of the license implications of his
GPL3'd Python build tool called "Vellum":
http://www.zedshaw.com/projects/vellum/index.html (See the "License" section)

""" In more direct terms, the GPLv3 does not apply to any build specs
(.vel) files you write since those are parsed, and does not apply to
anything you build with Vellum (since building is not linking)"""

Okay, thread closed. Goodnight. :-)
