Well, it's mainly two points. First, I know it permits linking of LGPL'd
code to proprietary code - but after reading through it I can't tell you
*where* it says this. And secondly it only barely allows it, i.e. when
linking a LGPL'd library to proprietary code you have to be very careful to
not suddenly violate the LGPL.

Nope. From home it's too expensive (pay-per-minute phone fees) and at Uni I
usually don't have the time.
Oh, I also didn't know it yet ;)
