Sorry I confused two emails (and I am far from being an expert), but the above
reasoning remains valid, and so you are right, it becomes lpgl3+

Is this a problem? What is the license under which you release your work, I 
mean the
work that depends on G-Wrap? G-Wrap depends on Guile, so afaiu, no matter what, 
minimum license under which you could release is precisely the lgpl3+?
