I think we should discontinue the LGPL downloads as soon as
there is the Apache Release. The archive will remain available
but it should be clear that we will not support the legacy
versions or the previous licensing schemes.

If some hypothetical user reports a LGPL violation here were
are not going to do anything about it, except to show them the
way to the AL2 code and a give them a pat in the back.
