Actually, I will add this. It depends how open and blatant the
violation is. If it's just a matter of accepting new contributions
under a copyleft free license in the same spirit as the GFDL, and
combining these new contributions with the old ones under the GFDL, is
it really that much more open and blatant than not following the terms
of the GFDL in the first place?
