LGPL is OK for me. Though I propose the same license modification as in Linux:
allow linking with closed-source binaries. Overflow can use foreign nodes and
types compiled in a shared library. This is forbidden by the (L)GPL, unless it
is explicitly allowed, as for the Linux kernel (which allow closed-source
drivers). Anyone thinks this is bad?
