[GRASS-user] licensing question: calling GRASS GIS modules via the grass.script API in an MIT/Apache licensed script ?

We work with a company on a project where we use GRASS GIS to calculate
accessibility indicators. The main output we provide is a Python script
which calls GRASS GIS modules via the grass.script API. The company is
willing to make this script free software, but would like to license it
with a permissive license such as MIT or Apache.
I would think that calling GRASS GIS modules in a script does not
automatically imply the script has to be GPL, but what about the use of
the Python API ?
I would think that this case falls in the grey area described at  and
have tendency to think that MIT/Apache license would be allowed.
Does anyone have a more informed opinion ?
