You have a sick sense of humor my friend or You managed to NOT read the press.... The following

articles were primarily bound in my desire to use GNU Trove:

?permalink=what+to+do+about+the+LGPL+in+Java+.html

In the end we discovered LGPL is okay for situations where you can avoid distributing the
LGPL 
library and still have the software work.  There aren't really any such situations in POI.
 The issue is 
with section 6 of the LGPL.  Unless the Trove developers would give us special dispensation
to 
release trove sans section 6, we're pretty much stuck.
