I think this discussion of whether calling functions makes a 
derivative work or not misses the point.

The point being (IMHO), I have never seen a WP theme that wasn't 
written using the standard Loop code either from the Codex or from 
another theme.

Therefore these themes are all created by incorporating/modifying GPL 
code, and they are therefore derivative works and therefore GPL.

In my non-binding, non-lawyer opinion.
