That's a good point.
To me, the original post smellt like "troll" ... and the disharmony that has 
been generated as a result of the original post makes it smell  more 
strongly of "troll" ... and the fuel that this "Torbjorn Granlund" has added 
to the fire with his subsequent posts smell even more strongly (yet again) 
of "troll".

However, we all know (or at least most of us do) that, although Torbjorn is 
not averse to the occasional prank (especially around 1st April), he is 
unlikely to be intentionally trolling this list.

I know one shouldn't feed trolls, but I'll ask one question of the op 
(whoever he or she happens to be):

If it could be demonstrated to you that there was a valid problem with the 
GMP license, do you intend to:
a) fix the problem by having the LGPL 3 license amended ?
b) fix the problem by having GMP switch to a different license ?
c) do something other than a) or b) ?
d) do nothing about it at all ?
e) do none of the above (please specify) ?
