Go read the GPL. You cannot place any _further_ restrictions
contained within the GPL. You can have pieces of code released with
_less_ conditions. As I've already said, you cannot change the
license without the copyright holder's permission. The BSD license
does not give that permission, therefore, it remains BSD licensed,
and under your theory it is therefore GPL incompatible.
