Worst case:  We use SOLID under the GPL, but re-work the interface between 
Blender and SOLID so it can be removed cleanly.  IF we later issue a 
commercial licence to Blender, AND the customer wants SOLID, then we would 
have to negotiate Licencing fees for Solid too.   Perhapse we could negotiate 
a deal so that the SOLID author gets the difference in fees between Blender 
with SOLID and  without.  However, it would be best to have this number in 
advance - in writing.
