So how is the KDE requirement of kdelibs being LGPL (X11, BSD, etc, and 
explicitely _not_ GPL) any different?


It's one thing to accept a risk to your own data, but quite another to
standardize on something that imposes that risk on others, no matter
how unlikely you think it is that anything "really bad" will happen,
and no matter how desirable the outcome.  -- Bart Schaefer, on ietf-822
