Question: Could you describe the concept of GPL/LGPL related to JS and therefore EEL2, is it possible to use those JS scripts in a proprietary application?

    As it pertains to running GPL JSFX in REAPER, perhaps the best analogy is GPL JSFX:REAPER::GPL software::Windows? In keeping with the spirit of the GPL, if proprietary software runs a GPL script, the user should have access to the source of that script and be able to change it.

    So that means ``the interpreted program, to the interpreter, is just data'' but I have to make the scripts available to the user in order to comply with the license.
