This happens a lot at application level as well. I am aware
that you are Linux-savvy, so you will know this rather well.
Taking WordPress as an example, there are CMS's out there
which integrate WordPress with some other 'beasts' such as
Coppermine and re-distribute. What about K2, Lynceum, and
Lightpress, for instance?
Then come to consider PHP-Nuke, which contains phpBB, among
plenty of other re-used and grossly grafted code. It's the
beauty of the GPL, leading to faster development of more
versatile software. The end-user benefits, as well as
developers who undertake a new project, e.g. MySQL, PHP ->
b2 -> WP.
