That's being a bit hard Ryan.

the library is based on NSPR, and would involve some work to remove it.

from the discussion so far we are not even sure if linking GPL libraries 
is allowed, and in fact may be currently in violation, we should really 
have a clear statement on this, and remove the GPL-infected code if we 
need to, as well as put something on the list saying that we can't 
include anything with GPL licence (to stop all the patches we get asking 
us to modify rewrite to accept mysql for instance)
