We may need to make a distinction between libraries that are *in* the
LSB sample implemenation for compiling glibc (or whatever) vs. ones in
the sample implementation for LSB applications.  Or maybe we can just
leave it all up to the LSB application author.

The db 2.x license is a little odd.

I'm not quite so pessimistic.
