Thanks for your suggestion, but it seems I had oversimplified my
intentions when I wrote the above. One of my intentions was to
specify a set of basic requirements for my source code and not go
far as to restrict the code to a particular license. That is, I want
to allow my code to be sucked into any superset license.
In this manner, I feel the LGPL is too restrictive because since it
narrows down its list of superset licenses to only LGPL and GPL.
