Seriously, that even more reason for hoping the relicensing of
libgladeui as LGPL does not happen. Basically, what you are proposing,
is that Glade be licensed in a way that it would favor fragmenting GNOME
while removing freedom to their users. 

Linux and GNOME are not meant to be a cheap replacement to other
non-Free software. They are meant to be Free Software, empower users and
application developers. And I consider that these vendor that take Linux
and GNOME and make it proprietary in some way or the other are actually
riping off this work.
