Bill Eldridge did not write any of the lines below.
I'm very sceptical about the statement attributed

 This is good for our interpretation; it means that it is up to the law
 and the courts to decide whether a given work is "derivative" and falls
 under the licensing requirements.  This means that the FSF assertion
 that a pluggable component is a "derivative work" is almost certainly
 false in some circumstances.
    

IIRC the GPL clearly sais that its only compile time linked objects that
come under the GPLs duristriction.

As Josh said the GPL doesnt seek to control use, just distribution and
derived works. Runtime linking definatly counts as use.
