If you bundle TYPO3 with your product and sell it "privatly" to a customer
as a whole, you still risk to sell a GPL product. So you better sell
him GPL Software and private software separted, maybe bundled on a CD. As
a second service you assist him to setup his private software.

Maybe it is good to fix the separate delivery on the papers. Else it may
happen that the customer claims, that you have delivered him one big piece
of GPL and sells your non GPL software to others as GPL in this
