[Mono-devel-list] Mono.Debugger assemly - licensing?

Judging from the COPYING file in mono-svn/debugger/ it seems that 
everything in this directory is GPL'ed and that therefore the 
Mono.Debugger assembly is GPL'ed as well.

I was wondering how that fits into policy of shipping only LGPL'ed 
assemblies as stated in a recent post of Jonathon Pryor. Comments?

We do not really have a problem with Mono.Debugger being GPL'ed since 
X-develop uses socket communication with a defined protocol to 
communicate with debugger implementations (MS .NET 1.1, MS .NET 2.0 and 
Mono, shortly). We will thus just make the debugger backend GPL'ed.

Best regards,
