yep, Steve Underwood was very responsive and the quest is over as he  
to relicense to "LGPL 2.1 and later."

I'll post a patch with the updated license header so that a anybody  
stumbling on
this thread will have the correct LGPL 2.1 only version.


On a side note, I think the G722 patch [1] should be removed or at least
a warning about its incompatible license should be added in the wiki.
Will gladly do it if a consensus is reached.

thanks and have a great day
