[Zope] Zope and the GPL poison pill

| In order to link/incorporate a GPL'd module, you have to be able to
| distribute the entire work under the GPL.
| Therefore, assuming RMS is correct, GPL'd components can't be
| distributed as part of a Zope solution.
| Is this correct? If it is, the GPL isn't very appropriate for the
| license of a Zope product, becuase it's a packaging nightmare.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by a «module». Is a module an
extension to the Zope application, or is it a Product that resides in
lib/python/Products? I'm a bit confused, you use «component»,
«product» and «module». Which is what?
And if it really is Products (as in lib/python/Products), does this
mean that if I make a GNU GPL licensed application for a client, I
can't actually distribute Zope with it? I have to install them
