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). http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#WhatDoesCompatMean http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#GPLIncompatibleLibs (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). -rich
