Hi Kevin
We are not allowed to physically include and distribute LGPL in Apache 
projects, however it is acceptable (not ideal, but acceptable) for 
Apache projects to have dependencies on (and dynamically link to) LGPL 
code.  Consider for example, the Apache HTTP Server on Linux... it 
relies on multiple services provided by LGPL libraries.  The HTTP Server 
project relies on LGPL libraries being present on Linux systems.
