So as a practical matter I guess I can recommend the JPF project  
programmers to either

* use dual licensing (but then I don't see any good examples of other  
open source projects following such pattern) or
* switch to another license that would satisfy both (L)GPL and Apache  
downstream users. If I understand correctly, a revised BSD license  
[1], [2] satisfies this requirement.

[2] http://www.opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php
