It doesn't matter. In a typical commercial development
environment, you just don't have any control over that.

At some companies I've gotten free software included
in products in a way that required certain extra files
from the 3rd party to be included inside our installation
package - such as a source code tarball, GNU license,
and such. It wasn't easy, but I've done it. But to change
the way our own code is distributed - forget it.

If you happen to be in a situation where the LGPL thing
can be integrated as a dynamic library, fine. Otherwise,
I don't see it.
