    No, some Gnulib modules are intended for use only in standalone

But Paul, as you know, this is precisely not the distinction between
LGPL and GPL (library vs. program) that rms wants for GNU.

The somewhat-valid argument for the constant license relaxation in
gnulib that I see is that much of gnulib is about stuff already
available under permissive licenses.  For example, any functionality
offered by glibc is pretty obviously pointless to keep GPL'd or LGPL3'd.
For non-glibc functionality, though, it's less clear to me.
