However, if that other code isn't under the GPL, you cannot link to it. It is as simple as that. If the author wanted to allow that, he would have chosen the LGPL. And the fact that you can *technically* link GPL code to GPL-incompatible code doesn't make it more legal. -- .''`. : :' : We are debian.org.
