I'm using the LGPL for library code, and GPL for applications.  Although
a lot of noise is generated from the linking issues, the most imporant
point to me is that LGPL allows you to use the library in other open
source (but non-GPL-compliant) applications. 

Binary/commercial/proprietary software - well, I'll worry about it the
day it happens.  So far, nobody ever asked for a BSD license - but I'd
be happy about an exception (even with modifications to the library, as
long as those modifications were available).

Please report back if you do!

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
