incompatible with GPL in the way MPL allow linking of propietary
code. I'm not sure, but I think you can link MPL code to GPL if you
make all the linked code redistributable and available. The GPL
infects the MPL, but both licenses can comply the requisites. I will
ask if Mozilla is linked with any GPL code for example.
There is really a conflict here? If yes you can't use IBX with the
free version of Kylix....
Or you can't develop GPL software linked to Interbase because it's
IPL (MPL based)...
I hope there is no conflict.
