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.

Best wishes,
