Submission + - GPL2 Libraries - Is there a point ?

PiSkyHi writes: I understand that if I build an application that links with a library that is licensed under GPL2, I must also make my application GPL2. I can see that value in this for an application, but for a library, what's to stop me separating my program into a GPL2 compliant client app that talks to the rest of my (choose my own license) application ?
