*sigh* this was clearly not what I meant. Maybe I chose my words a little
poorly, but if there is a license coflict (which everyone now pointed out
the case) you have little choices left. The options you do have are:
 - contact the maintainers/developers of the product your depending on
   (this could be in the form of submitting a patch)
 - drop the product
 - accept that you won't be able to do what you would like to do.
