Actually, they don't. They consider the GPL a perfectly valid license
for a library; however, they also consider that in some cases, it *may*
be better to use the LGPL instead. Just not all of them.
Why do you think they
* Never released libreadline under anything else than the GPL,
* Renamed the LGPL from the "Library GPL" to the "Lesser GPL"?
Fun will now commence
