I don't think they do - I'm pretty sure the GPL makes some sort of 
distinction about how the code is used in the larger project. If it's 
forked as a separate process from a binary I think it's ok, but if it's 
executed like WP plugins are then the license must be GPL-compatible. I 
can't remember exactly how it goes, though.
