For some reasons, I am under the impression that the code produced by  
Lyx is not quite the same as that put out by open packages such as  
those to be found, say, on CTAN. More to the point, I am under the  
impression that the code produced by Lyx has to be edited/typeset  
with Lyx. In which case it wouldn't comply with the terms of the GNU  
Free Documentation License.

Is this correct?
