as for LGPL + static linking exception:
- I wonder if FSF lawyers have made a recommendation for wording or 
license for this purpose?  (Currently there exists wording from 
WxWidgets, and some Haskell libraries, and is there anything else in the 
real world?  Are there licenses other than LGPL intended to accomplish 
this that work better?)
- What about LGPL version 3? Can/do we accommodate that? Is it easier or 
harder to write the exception in v3 (in which the LGPL is written in 
terms of the GPLv3)?
