Hi Jim,

Do you have RMS's backing for this move? The original version of this code
was contributed to the FSF by Jan Brittenson, who is not on this mailing list.
It was my understanding that we can relicense from GPL to LGPL only code
which we have written ourselves (by virtue of the copyright assignment that
each of us signed with the FSF), and that relicensing otherwise is an RMS

I too would like to see getndelim2 under LGPL. I just don't think that we
can do it without RMS' blessing.
