Yes, it could be included too.

There seems to be a conflict of interests on your part.

MonoDevelop is licenced under the GNU LGPL. The LGPL states that you
cannot change it to any other licence, except the GPL (regardless
weather it is more libertine or not).

Now that I remember, the DataGrid control is also part of MonoDevelop
sometime in its history, that means we should settle on the LGPL only,
as the GPL is really not adecuate for a library.

(While I am at this, let me ask if anybody knows what is a DataGrid
doing in MonoDevelop?)

We could of course allow additional widgets that have not been freed
by the GNU licences under a more libertine one, but they would have to
be new controls, not ones based on code under the LGPL.


God bless you all,
