rejecting patches because of the FOSS license feels uhm ...
even more so if that means redoing work ...
the people who want LGPL can rewrite, re-port or contact authors for relicense

The decission about which license is the authors decission and we should accept
what we legally and morally can. We can and do include LGPL, GPL, BSD and public
domain, i see no reason to push patch submitters toward a specific choice.
