For the record: interpretation with which I personally agree.

If I redistribute a jar file that has the exact same MD5 of the one they 
distribute I am *not* modifying the library, even if my code extends one 
of their classes.

But the FSF (who doesn't like the LGPL but the cat is out of the bag) 
does not want to make such a public statement.
