You can't pose additional restrictions on L/GPL software.
It would be against the copyleft.
My patches are in the public domain, anyone can use them
for any purpose.
Once my patches are combined with the L/GPL source the
aggregate program is L/GPL, at least that is what the L/GPL
says, no one can change the L/GPL status of a program.

There is nothing wrong with GPL'edness, I just choose not
to assign an unneeded, extra copywrite, to Cygnus, or the FSF,
when the L/GPL already specifically handles the situation.
If the L/GPL can't stand on it's own merits, many programmers
have made a mistake in their copywrite decisions.-)
