This is argumentum ad hominem. Again I remind you if you have better information just present it. It's more constructive than continue writing something I never wrote and even never meant.
Regards relicensing, it seems you you totally forgot the "infectiousness" of GPL. If you want a use a GPL code in closed source project, you must ask and relicense every piece of code, every patch, from every developer who worked on it before. As every version, branch or a fork is GPL again and again until someone comes and rewrites it from beginning. And if the source code isn't stable hosted on a CVS system for long time, it is quite difficult to detect appropriate parts of the submitted patches from different developers as these changes are quite atomic. Actually it is often better to start with a complete rewrite from scratch if you have learnt and have knowhow.
