Huh, that becomes involved... In all logic, conveying code through a .py file
or a .qgz doesn't change the fact that it is code, so I'd expect licensing
rules to also apply to it. So if that Python code uses QGIS API, it is
probably to be under the GPL (but that only affects those code snippets, not
the rest of the project).
