Having GStreamer change its license to GPL would work just as well. In
fact some might argue that's a better way to rectify things. :-)

Folks who started libcdio and who have contributed have done so under
the assumption and understanding it is GPL, not LGPL. It was
registered with FSF as GPL. I am not aware of any sort of desire let
alone consensus to change the license. Of course, if I'm wrong I guess
folks will chime in here.

Done. But if there is further discussion you might want to check back
with the mailing list or join it. (It really doesn't generate that
much email traffic.)
