The one which causes the least trouble.  How many folks are using
libguile with proprietary software?  How many with free software?  I
daresay that former group is much smaller than the latter, but I could
be wrong.  Seems to me that the smaller group should be
inconvenienced, not the larger.

I'm still not certain why guile doesn't simply use the LGPL.  And I
still don't buy that dynamic linking produces a derived work; nor am I
convinced that static linking really does in any meaningful sense.
