Distributing Bernt's sql-ij.el source file contributed under the ASL 
should be fine, and distributing anything under GPL isn't. So maybe the 
readme could provide instructions on where to download the GPL piece and 
build it.


p.s. There have been quite a few discussions on legal-discuss@apache.org 
regarding lgpl and possibly relaxing the current apache rules (if I'm 
reading things right). More importantly, it sounds like they're going to 
target ApacheCon in December for solidified info. I'd encourage all the 
committers interested in these licensing issues to attend.
