Choosing GPL over a MIT/BSD style license mean limiting the use of a

Well, some smart people put the GPL license over their library (so
people are free to use it, as long as the final product is GPL itself!)
AND allow to buy a proprietary license for the hooked people that want
to use the library in a closed source product...
Looks legitimate to me, except when they adopt such licensing late in
the game (like ExtJS did, going from LGPL to GPL).
