Are there any thoughts to changing the license used by Vorbis from the GPL
to the LGPL? As it stands, linking to libvorbis will taint any program. I'd
like to research using Vorbis and contribute to it, but I'm not at the
liberty to GPL the engine I'd like to link with libvorbis. The GPL prevents
me from using it. The LGPL would still protect the Vorbis code while
allowing non-GPL'd apps to link to it.
Just something for consideration...
