Actually, the LGPL addresses *that* directly. Yes, you can, but they
may add a few requirements that may prove annoying. That part of the
LGPL is... hard to read.
Also, don't fret too much. There's 'what the LGPL says' and 'what we,
the Vorbis team consider kosher.' We, the Vorbis team, consider what
you want to do to be kosher. If the LGPL prevents you from doing what
we think you should be able to do, we will remedy the situation by
dumping the LGPL if absolutely necessecary.
