While I have no source explicitly listing LGPLv3 as compatible to
Apache-2, compatibility can be logically concluded by looking at the
additions of the LGPLv3 to the GPLv3 [1] and realizing there are no
changes to the "patent termination and indemnification provisions" [2]
that cause the GPLv2 incompatibility but are present in the GPLv3.

I really hope the LGPLv3 suffices to ensure this! :)
