Well, I'd prefer (L)GPL. Mainly for licensing simplicity. It's not
easy to grok the ramifications of licenses; the proliferation of
open-source licenses of late hasn't helped either. And LGPL *is*
quite liberal. I can't imagine a setting where someone might have
difficulties with it (my fantasy is quite limited), whereas the
Guile exception has created difficulties of its own.

The only question that would remain for me is: the numerous
folks who worked on Guile did that under the assumption of the
current Guile license. How do *they* feel about a change?
