be linked without the linked program being 'infected' by the GPL.
2) I am going to contact the author of the expat libraries, to see if he will
allow us to use the expat libraries under the LGPL as well, instead of strait
3) Once #2 is talken care of, I propose we change the license of jlib itself,
to be LGPL INSTEAD of GPL. I'm not sure what we can do about the
transport/client code itself. The perl modules are all released under the
Artistic License, so there is no worry there..
I think once we have #3, we are all set about the concerns that people have
