A Short term could be m3core RT INTERFACES as they developed as a standard Modula-3, which they declare "free to use and implement". I however don't know about other's companies codes, since they could offer just that for their purposes, but that's less central of the issue. For instance linking other FOSS could be approved by that change in order to break down even further dependence.

I can't say I really understand this paragraph.

Certainly, I'd like it to be compatible with GPL.

But I've been told that the FSF considers the DEC-SRC licence 
incompatible with the GPL.
