No. The current version has had a _clarification_ added, but is
still very much GPLed (without additional clauses).  See the
Debian package or http://www.lyx.org/license.html

In any case, there's a bug reported againsr xwatch but none
against lyx.  See my point?

BTW, I'm happy to seek a license change, I just object to BTS
harassment and declaration like `XWatch should not be in there'.
