[Haskell-cafe] GPL License of H-Matrix and prelude numeric

Hi all, 

I realised that haskell in the base libraries tries to consistently stick to
the permissive BSD license to also give the language traction in the
commercial world.

The H-Matrix and the prelude numeric packages however, which in my mind
cover really important ground work, are issued under the resprictive GPL. 

Is that only because they link into other external GNU - libaries with GPL
license ? -- If yes would be repackaging the haskell-native bits in an extra
BSD package an option ?  

Cheers Phil
