Yes.  There was a conference call this week (or last?) with FSF and ASF 
folks to discuss this - amongst other Java-related things.  Brian's also 
sent emails to the FSF asking for clarification on the specific LGPL 
scenarios we are concerned about.  I don't believe we've received an reply 
to that email yet, but it may have been touched on during that con-call. 
We've also been in discussion with other projects (such as Hibernate) that 
use LGPL about additional terms they might consider adding that would 
resolve our concerns.

So, yes, it's something we are actively working to resolve.  -- justin
