Ton I think you know full well the potential which is being thrown away.
So if you feel we should not pursue this, then I will agree with you.

But I'm disappointed, as far as freedom goes no one would even notice
the difference between GPL and LGPL except for people who want to earn
a living writing software.

LGPL is the best of both worlds.

I guess the message is if you want to feed your family, then do not waste
your time with open source unless you want to have a hobby, because
open source doesn't care if you starve.
