hmm, right. the thing is, the code has been rewriten for the most part 
of it, so they are not tied with the turck-mmcache copyright holders 
anymore (afaict). so maybe it's possible to discuss it with upstream.

so basically, what has to be done? they must just explain that they 
allow anyone to build their GPL software against php, is that it ?

the situations changed in the sense that we are not tied because of the 
past anymore.
