True. The problem is that in some perverted fashion it seems to me that if 
I use a GPL library with something the whole thing should go GPL, i.e. my 
use of ZPoPyDA could make me obliged to distribute Zope under GPL, which I 
of course can't do and thus i start feeling scizophrenic ;)

I personally don't have anything against (L)GPL either, its just my gut 
feeling that having _multiple_ potentially clashing licenses inside what 
should be ideally one package is confusing as the interactions of  
licenses can't be understood by noone ;)
