GPL Incompatibilities

I've been searching for an RPC system, and I really like ICE. I have no problem writing my software to be GPL compatable, but I want to make it really easy for other companies to contact my software. The only way I could think of doing this is by writing hooks into my system for other rpc mechanisms that way non-GPL compatable programs can still communicate. What other options do I have to let programmers communicate with my software using a non-GPL compatable license?

    got a signature

    Sorry, I didn't know I needed a signature. So, anyone have any ideas about my compatability problem?

    If your application links with Ice (dynamic or static; at compile time or runtime), then your application must be licensed under the terms of the GPL. Your only other option is to buy a commercial license, but I don't think this applies to your case.

    There is a good FAQ about the GPL here: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html
