Yes, after reading some more docs & discussion, it does indeed look like
these should be compatible.

Assuming that there's no objection (I don't expect any), we will switch
to using the LGPLv3.

Also, I intend to release 1.3.0RC1 shortly (hopefully this week; we just
need to resolve some Oracle quirks), which would be the first version to
explicitly specify that we're using v3.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention and helping us find a solution.

Hans
