This seems fine, the only possible concern that I have with this is
that GFDL licensed code snippets aren't compatible with the GPL. I'm
not sure how much actual code is in worg, and if this is an issue, but
it's worth considering. 

My impulse for free-software-style writing projects is to use the
emacs wiki license statement which says CC-BY-SA/GFDL/GPL 3 or later
(with a clarification of what constitutes "corresponding source
code"), but that might be a bit vague in some cases.
