You mean "ten lines or less in length"? Yeah, given that the length of
lines seem to be unrestricted. [L]GPL is totally brian-damaged
technically and legally. Really.
Personally, I'd be inclined to regard any work that included only
the unmodified LGPL'ed header files, specifically supplied for that
purpose, and dynamically linked to the unmodified main body of the
library, to be an independent and separate work as far as the LGPL
goes - static linking and assorted tricks aside for the moment.
Sony Entertainment's lawyers did not seem to have a problem including my LGPL'ed
HawkVoice library as a DLL in their new game Planetside.
