GLORP is LGPL, with a subsequently added explanation of how the the 
license should be interpreted in a Smalltalk context. INAL, but this 
still seems muddy, since it's unclear whether or not the author's 
interpretation and intentions would override the actual license, which 
is LGPL. Or, is it the case that the actual license is LGPL + author 
addendums - gah, another license mess.
