Just use vinum. It has been there forever and will provide the features
you seem to be interested in without the GPL "burden". I absolutely fail
to see any of your points in why we would want to have geom and I would
definitely not welcome having it, for whatever it's worth.

If GPL stuff is a non-starter for you, as you put it, then gcc should
pose a problem to you as well...
