Code can be made available under multiple licenses simultaneously, as long as none of the
licenses in force have terms that are mutually incompatible. This is especially easy when
one of the licenses is a permissive license with minimal compliance requirements. Thus another
project can typically include code under a license like AL or BSD and make it available under
another license such as LGPLv3.
