I don't feel too vehement about it, I'd just
rather not see some guy who seems to be responsible in
his use of SDL to get pestered with a "you are in
violation of the LGPL" message when I don't think the
situation even remotely warrants it. I don't really
think it's in anyone's best interest to have a million
copies of the source code floating around on every
project page that uses SDL, most of which won't be up
Besides, you know how these license threads heat
up all the time :)
