To my greatest & extremely positive surprise, I got today an answer from
the FSF (I really am very happy of such a quick answer)! I hope it OK to
cite here part of the reply I've got to my question  [gnu.org #579118]
to licensing@fsf.org since Karl Berry replied to me


The FSF has already officially approved and recommended the strategy
mentioned in your message, and throughout the thread: dual-license,
under the GPL and GFDL, material that applies to both code and
manuals,
or is auto-generated from one to the other.

In your case, you are generating documentation from the code.  So, put
a
license notice in the original (GPL'd) source files that the
documentation so generated is also available under the FDL.
Automatically insert an FDL license statement in the generated files.


Regards and thanks to everybody!

Great, it's always good when you hit an established FAQ to which the answer is already available

Cheers.
