 From my understanding it's not a question of big or tiny trouble. Not 
even the smallest obligation that has to be fulfilled for distributing 
modified and unmodified versions of the software is acceptable for being 
GPL-compatible (or even calling it "GPL"), apart from the obligation to 
stick to the GPL.
