OK. Doesn't sound that complicated. What are the template files for?
We are just compiling elisp-files. Where do the templates come in?

Oh, that legal issue ;-)

OK. I think I see your point. If there is a "full source code" claim
and it is found offensive I think IMHO that it should be dropped. A
reference to the AUCTeX-package and where it can be found should
suffice though to satisfy the GPL (But I'm no lawyer etc etc)
