which is fairly irrelevant isn't it? If Thanh has written code for, say, 
\ifincsname then he can license this code the way he like on its own. If 
combined with xpdf libraries in a pdftex binary the combined result may 
have to be GPL (though even this is debatable) but if on its own it can 
be definitely licensed differently.
