Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] pidl license question

Samba's svn has made the switch from GPLv2 to GPLv3. While I don't see
any problem in including a GPLv3 tool (pidl) into the Wireshark repository
I have a question regarding the license of the generated dissectors. So
far the generated dissectors don't contain a license statement (nor a
copyright statement), nor does the README accompanying the tool. So my
question is: Can we still use the pidl tool from Samba to generate
source files for Wireshark?

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
