The Lesser GPL used to be called the Library GPL. For historical
reasons this license still refers to the software application as
"the Library" which can be confusing for licensees. Also, a
licensee is allowed to convert the Lesser GPL to a full GPL, after
which their enhancements could not be incorporated back into our
version of the software. So, for us, LGPL is out.
This license strikes a good balance between making the source code
available for use in commercial situations, while at the same time
requiring that modifications / enhancements be published under the
same license (thereby enabling all good enhancements to find their
way back to us).
