I gave you that answer, here is it a clearer one.  I don't know if you 
will consider it legally waterproof -- and you cannot consider it 
official of course.

If your changes are subclasses of something is clearly part of the 
interface (you cannot use Swazoo without providing those subclasses, and 
those subclasses are not important to other users of Swazoo), adding 
your subclasses is not going to LGPL.

If you modify existing methods it's going to be LGPL.  But in general if 
your changes affect something is clearly part of the internal working of 
Swazoo, e.g. you fixed a bug or added a new feature that other users of 
the interface could use, it's going to LGPL.
