Hi Matt,

switching to LGPL would be great. For now version 3 is not perfectly
usable for GNUstep applications. Some of the more important GNUstep
applications are still on GPL2 and this is not compatible with LGPL3.
Only for that reason does GNUstep still use LGPL2 or later.
If you could use "LGPL2 or later" as well, we would have a perfect fit here.


PS: Thank you for your great library!
