Do your classes really implement Hibernate interfaces or extend 
Hibernate classes? Or do they just import them?

No one has ever demonstrated that doing an "import" on classes that are 
under the LGPL obliges you to license your code under the (L)GPL. It 
even goes against the publicly stated intentions of the Hibernate 
developers. I'd use the Apache license without fear in this case (as a 
matter of fact, I do).

As far as "extensions" are concerned, I'm not sure if that's the case.
