As we discussed before, a direct dependency on a LGPL licensed jar is
prohibited, but are transitive dependencies prohibited?

For instance, Rya Geoindexing depends on Geomesa (Apache 2.0 licensed) and
Geomesa depends on Geotools (LGPL licensed).  I believe that we get into
trouble in Rya Geoindexing for two reasons:

1. We build an uber jar that contains the Geotools jars.
2. The Rya Geoindexing source code directly uses (or "links") to classes
contained in Geotools.

If we were able to eliminate 1 and 2 (but still have Geomesa and Geotools
as transitive dependencies), could we include Rya Geoindexing in the
