The GPL is designed to restrict distribution of combinations of things
that are not all-GPL if any component is GPL.  So any other license is
equally problematic as long as GPL components might exist.   The 'less
problematic' solution is dual licensing like perl uses unless you want
to apply restrictions one way or the other.
