I know the FSF recommends this, but seriously.. if you ever get a chance
to ask one of their lawyers personally, like off the record, their
opinion you might get a different response. I know someone who did. :)
But anyway, I'm don't want to derail this discussion with this. I just
wanted to point out that LGPL 2.1/3 doesn't strike me as strange, and in
fact that's exactly what I would have chosen if it were up to me for a
personal project of my own.
