If it's stored in Apache CVS and redistributed with Cocoon, it can't.

Outside Apache, you can't add "(c) ASF" anyhow, since you're operating 
on your own, but you are perfectly free to copy the license verbatim, 
change it into (c) Jeremy and import/invoke LGPL'ed method signatures. 
You might however inform your users that the no-strings-attached 
redistribution clause of ASF/BSD-style licenses isn't necesseraly 
compatible with clause 6 of the LGPL license, and that the FSF goes at 
length in denying the existence of this problem.

If the Hibernate peeps change the license for their API, that's 
something entirely different.
