my understanding is that the "derived works" concept applies if your
code can work just the same without the GPL'ed part.
for example: the standalone Lua interpreter can use GNU readline if
available; but if not, it's not the end of the world, so it's not a
"derived work" from the GPL'ed readline library.
if your Lua script can't run without the GPL part, then it must be GPL'ed too
