[Bf-committers] Solid library

Ho shit! This gnu text is so hard to understand... they say this:

"Only the copyright holders for the program can legally authorize this  

Here, a pointer to "the program" is confusing. From the text before it,  
I've assumed that "the program" applies to the exception library. As  
they write:

"This copyright notice and license notice give permission to link with  
the program FOO:"

I hoped the (c) holder of Solid could allow it... but I now re-read it,  
it seems that the (c) holders of Blender have to agree with it...

Each contributor to the code holds the original (c). As is for the code  
contributed by NaN.

Thanks for the hint, so this will mean it's just not possible...?
