[Ecls-list] License issues

After revisiting the GMP vs MPIR problem I have come to realize that
both libraries have switched to the LGPL v3+ model.

I am weary of the LGPL v3+ because, as far as I understand, it is more
restrictive than the LGPL v2 which is used in ECL. Indeed, from the
background discussion that I recall when v3 of the licenses were
introduced, the goal was to make commercial uses overall more

I personally would not rather switch if this means trouble. Could
someone more experience help me understand the differences?
