i have the distinct impression that the statement:

  a) APL is incompatible with GPL/LGPL
  b) but GPL/LGPL is compatible with APL

is wrong because _all_ GPLed software components (including the imported
libraries) need to be copyleft software AFAIK?

maybe my explanatory statement is wrong, too. but my impression
remains ;-)
