Harry has a good point. If Dave had solicited opinions on it, I wouldn't
have dreamed of asking! I'd just assume you chose GPL for your reasons and
that they should be respected. =)

On the other hand, a LGPL library that would allow easy usage of thread=

it will be used in open-source software, but most likely never be used in c=
ommercial / closed software solutions, and hence its "publicity" =

(Overcame my dose of laziness: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/why-not-lgp=

)End of the day, I think respect for the authors work is=
the most important thing, and I'd personally be slightly agitated if s=

respect the license that I'd chosen for the efforts I'd done.

Rant over I think :) -Harry
