Don't worry, we can handle `adult' comments :)

I'm a big fan of the GPL, so I think it's a great idea. I'm no lawyer,
but I'd say that the optimized code you generate would not count as
a derived work (any more than the binaries built by a GPL'ed compiler
would, or the images created by a GPL'ed image editor).
