-Preamble to the Gnu Lesser General Public License
-Copyright (c) 2000 Franz Incorporated, Berkeley, CA 94704
-The concept of the GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1
-("LGPL") has been adopted to govern the use and distribution of
-above-mentioned application. However, the LGPL uses terminology that
-is more appropriate for a program written in C than one written in
-Lisp. Nevertheless, the LGPL can still be applied to a Lisp program if
-certain clarifications are made. This document details those
-clarifications. Accordingly, the license for the open-source Lisp
-applications consists of this document plus the LGPL. Wherever there
-is a conflict between this document and the LGPL, this document takes
-precedence over the LGPL.
-A "Library" in Lisp is a collection of Lisp functions, data and
-foreign modules. The form of the Library can be Lisp source code (for
-processing by an interpreter) or object code (usually the result of
-compilation of source code or built with some other
-mechanisms). Foreign modules are object code in a form that can be
-linked into a Lisp executable. When we speak of functions we do so in
-the most general way to include, in addition, methods and unnamed
-functions. Lisp "data" is also a general term that includes the data
-structures resulting from defining Lisp classes. A Lisp application
-may include the same set of Lisp objects as does a Library, but this
-does not mean that the application is necessarily a "work based on the
-Library" it contains.
-The Library consists of everything in the distribution file set before
-any modifications are made to the files. If any of the functions or
-classes in the Library are redefined in other files, then those
-redefinitions ARE considered a work based on the Library. If
-additional methods are added to generic functions in the Library,
-those additional methods are NOT considered a work based on the
-Library. If Library classes are subclassed, these subclasses are NOT
-considered a work based on the Library. If the Library is modified to
-explicitly call other functions that are neither part of Lisp itself
-nor an available add-on module to Lisp, then the functions called by
-the modified Library ARE considered a work based on the Library. The
-goal is to ensure that the Library will compile and run without
-getting undefined function errors.
-It is permitted to add proprietary source code to the Library, but it
-must be done in a way such that the Library will still run without
-that proprietary code present. Section 5 of the LGPL distinguishes
-between the case of a library being dynamically linked at runtime and
-one being statically linked at build time. Section 5 of the LGPL
-states that the former results in an executable that is a "work that
-uses the Library." Section 5 of the LGPL states that the latter
-results in one that is a "derivative of the Library", which is
-therefore covered by the LGPL. Since Lisp only offers one choice,
-which is to link the Library into an executable at build time, we
-declare that, for the purpose applying the LGPL to the Library, an
-executable that results from linking a "work that uses the Library"
-with the Library is considered a "work that uses the Library" and is
-therefore NOT covered by the LGPL.
-Because of this declaration, section 6 of LGPL is not applicable to
-the Library. However, in connection with each distribution of this
-executable, you must also deliver, in accordance with the terms and
-conditions of the LGPL, the source code of Library (or your derivative
-thereof) that is incorporated into this executable.
