Well, the GPL says: GPL say: If you use this code you must use GPL, too 
(and do some other things). BSD says: Do whatever you want, as long as 
you add the copyright notice (and don't sue the autor). Therefore you 
can use BSD-Code and publish the whole thing as GPL (, as all BSD 
license terms are included in the GPL). You can not use GPL-Code and 
Publish it as BSD.
You can probably out _your_ code under a duo license: GPL and BSD - with 
a notice that the BSD only applies to the code in the file. (Therefore 
someone can reuse helper-functions, etc.)

IANAL... But that's my understanding of quite a few discussions I followed.
