I would like to say that I greatly respect Daniel's position, much more than yours.

As for your project, I wish you a sincere good luck. You know, there are great MIT-licensed JIT compilers around. Happy hacking!

After reading your side of the story, I have the feeling that keeping my
parts of TinyCC as LGPL was the right choice.

TinyCC is a small project with very few active developers. If your product
uses TinyCC, you should feel the responsibility of committing improvements
you made back the main project. (If on the other hand your product consists
mainly of a modified version of TinyCC, you can try to convince us by
offering a share of your earnings. ;)
