Yes, but most of them are quite easy to program.
They just create them to get some experience. :)

I don't think that's how it works. If you are using code
that is GPLed and that can be downloaded somewhere
else, you are not hiding anything that is not yours. Maybe
if you charge money for using GPL software alone or if
you reuse code from GPL software that is not yours and
change the license. I think this is a real violation.
