See, that's the part I don't get.  I know this is tedious if you've been
through this, but I don't see how the LGPL is viral (the GPL is definitely
viral, by design).
If all you are doing is restributing an LGPL package without modification, I
just don't see how it affects your license.  As I understand it, the LGPL
and the ASL are pretty much the same, until you modify and redistribute.
