Sure, buy my point was that it's pointless to do so because the code that
is dual licensed probably won't be very useful without a tcp/ip stack.
(since if one chooses to use the GPL part of the dual license, then the
BSD code would need to be excluded)
Then again, I suppose it still makes some sense if you want the non-BSD
code to be potentially be usable in other, GPL licensed projects.
