Thank you once again.
Lisp code is essential for Java UI + Dragmath (at runtime)
But not vice versa, i.e. Lisp code can be used independently without 
having to link it to Java UI.
So it makes the project a derived work of Lisp code.

Also, Dragmath is necessary (even at compile time) for Java UI, which 
makes Java UI a derived work of Dragmath.

So Java UI has to respect both licenses.

As GPL is more restrictive than BSD, It will take over the java UI , i.e 
Java UI has to be released under GPL (Sad, but I can compromise)

My main interest is that Lisp code is released under BSD. I have to share 
the source of Lisp anyway so the clause of GPL you mentioned doesn't 
matter much to me.

Thanks again,
