I'm worried about it :) If it's LGPL, I can use it at work, but I can't
release any code that imports from the LGPL'd jar.

And with RMS' 99 article:
http://www.fsf.org/licenses/why-not-lgpl.html

It would seem that it is not in the FSF' interest to clarify the LGPL as
far as it applies to Java as they/he only want the LGPL to be used in
certain strategic cases.

How about side-stepping the issue entirely and organising some kind of
collation of projects on sourceforge/ibiblio, or even if lgpl is the main
problem, setting up a project at savannah to host all the lgpl plugins to
asf licenced works?
