GPL is the only license that can be used for Pd-extended since the  
code in it is a mix of GPL and BSD-style.

GPL doesn't require you to publish any code.  It requires to you to  
give the code to anyone who you give binaries too.  If you don't give  
binaries to anyone, you don't have to give them code.
