Oh boy... that stupid, stupid bickering about true nature of LGPL.
Both Apache Foundation and FSF appeared like little kids arguing over
whose dad is stronger (this was few years back, when it was discussed
whether LGPL components could be used for Apache License projects)
Almost made me explicitly bar use of Apache licenses for my own projects. ;-p

(no, there is absolutely no reason to avoid LGPL from ASL license
code, absolute none -- UNLESS code is (c) by FSF, in which case maybe
there is a problem).

But of course Apache can impose their own, however misguided silly
rules on projects under their umbrella. :-)
