Oh, don't worry: it's not true.

However, using different licenses in the same program means all licenses 
have to be respected at once, and if you do that, then effectively the 
whole program has to be handled as if it were all GPL'ed, except for the 
fact that you can take any SIBSD part of it and handle it under SIBSD 
license. This is because GPL basically includes SIBSD's clauses, not the 
other way around.

Hans has not mentioned the other possibilities: making Pd partially 
GPL'ed, or asking me (and Chun) for relicensing some parts to SIBSD, or 
invoking fair use (for small snippets), etc.

Note: SIBSD = the 1999 version of the BSD license.
