Warren,

Was I arguing?   

Putting all the technical details aside, why did you choose LGPL over
GPL?
LGPL clearly exist to make working with proprietary software easier.
You clearly don't want, or care, about that, which is fine.  
(That's not a judgment or accusation, just an observation)

I am just curious then what other attributes/advantages are in LGPL that
took you down that path?


The differences of Static over Dynamic linking to LGPL libraries is
interesting.
It seems that Static linking to LGPL libraries offers no advantages over
GPL?  
I mean it doesn't meet the objective of working with proprietary
software any better.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Allan
