Sorry. Missed reading this last part.
So the problem is being able to move code from the core compiler (which
requires the license with binary distributions) to runtime libraries
(for which binary license redistribution is a bad thing). Correct?
Hrm. I am not a lawyer, but I don't think the MIT license gets you
around the problem either. Both require copies or significant portions
to carry the copyright notice; link in enough of the library, and one
may be technically required to include the license.
