Yes, all the .NET classes should be LGPL. That's what it's for- exactly these
sorts of cases. BTW, I suspect if you consider using a non-GPL compatible
license, you would find FSF support withdrawn quicker than you can say
"Mozilla Public License", and that would be bad.
We could use an Apache-style license, i.e. create a Mono foundation, and that
would license all the software under an ultra-permissive BSD license, but
personally I find the BSD license dangerous.
