GPL-with-exception is *less* restrictive than LGPL because it doesn't 
require that all binaries include the ability to be relinked with a new 
version of the library. There's practically nothing that's permitted 
under the LGPL that isn't also permitted under GPL-with-exception.

Please don't make remarks like that ("much more restrictive") without 
researching them - or at least justify why you would make a claim which 
is the exact opposite of the stated opinion of the people who drafted 
the license.
