Everything in csound was relicensed LGPL a couple of months ago. Now
literally *everything* in csound is LGPL. The page above is old and
obsolete, and should probably be changed. The funny part is that the
only one that pushed hard enough to have a clear GPL statement (though
with an exception) before this happened was me with the babo opcode.
Now all these problems are gone.

This has already been done by John Fitch, the canonical maintainer.
