some potential problems in using the LGPL v2.1 license
with C++ libraries.
"But I have not seen in the FAQ, so far, a series of licensing issues related to the unmodified LGPLv2.1 license proposed. One of these issues has to do with C++ templates for starters. While it is true that Qt 4.4 right now, does not use templates for signals and slots, it does have templates in container classes. Does an unmodified LGPLv2.1 - I assume that this is their intent, from what comes out of the current FAQ and republished by all other websites - take into consideration the use of C++ templates and template metaprogramming techniques by third party code, when instantiating these LGPLv2.1 templates in a non LGPLv2.1 license model (even OSI compliant)? C++ template instantiation is known for actually nesting code inside the end user code in ways that transcend the wording of an unmodified LGPL 2.1 license.
