As long as myDLL didn't link to or rely on any gpl'd code there's nothing
anyone can say about how people use it -- except for the copyright owner of

Bundling (distributing it and blender in the same 'package') is probably not
an option though.

The bottom line is that we consider everything you can create in Blender as

Hmm... so one can only make calls to gpl compatible code if they want to
distribute a script that runs in blender's interpreter?

That doesn't sound right.
