	Then he's fine with whatever license he choses.

	But "public domain" is GPL-compatible.  So he can always
release his code as "public domain", and compile in our .h file.  The
resultant binary would be under the GPL, but anyone who wanted to
could replace that .h file and release the resulting derivative under
whatever terms then desired.
