I'd like register my immediate objection to accepting this as an
external dependency.

According to this work is covered
under canonical's horrible and inacceptable contributor
agreement. IMNSHO Gnome should not depend  on any work that treats
external contributors in such a way.

Also, why is this LGPL 2&3-only instead of the usual LGPL 2.1-or-later?
