I think this applies, and allow "us" to continue the work without
major overhaul, it's up to the authors (magnum,solar, etc...) to
decide, but these are the exceptions I've read and see mentioned (like
in the wikipedia article).

(Still confusing to me, but I think it's saying you can change the
license slightly and allow the exception of a non-free library).
