I don't have the time to review the whole discussion now, but the
message you link to gives cups and snort as two examples of "major"
applications using gnutls and licensed as GPLv2 (and in the case of
CUPS, I think it's GPLv2 + an exception to allow linking with openssl).

I think that makes the issue a bit clearer.
