Leadership? Who said leadership?
I am just using Nokia as one example here. Nokia has one of the more
extreme licensing policies, e.g. they don't use GPL3 software and so
on. But still, D-Bus is perfectly fine with them.
If some JACK folks try to avoid D-Bus due to licensing reasons
regarding LGPL then they are apparently smoking something that is not
good for their health.

Gah, this is so wrong in so many ways, but uh, neither is this a JACK
mailing list nor am I a JACK developer, so I'll leave it with that.
