Paul, you keep making comparisons between Python web frameworks and the
Linux kernel.  Are you aware that there is a special note attached to the
Linux GPL[1] explaining that user-space code is not considered a derived
work of the Linux kernel?  Without that note, user-space code *could* be
considered a derived work of the kernel (obviously, or Linus Torvalds would
not have included the note).  Unless a GPL web framework carries a similar
notice, the comparison doesn't hold up.
