Sure, but in general we all are too clueless when it comes to licensing.
As I see it currently, the LGPL would fit our needs best.

Concerning the "Does OO-inheritance, plain linking, or only physical
modification create a derivated work?", I found this statement on the
LGPL wikipedia page:

,----
| The LGPL contains no special provisions for inheritance, because none
| are needed. Inheritance creates derivative works in the same way as
| traditional linking, and the LGPL permits this type of derivative work
| in the same way as it permits ordinary function calls.
