No problem... DSP code is beyond me.. so I am not doing anything with LS. 
I don't think there is anyone here that is stone faced against LS, or 
fully understands debian's stance against it. It just is.

The LS licence is worded in such a way as to achieve the opposite to it's 
intent. Someone using it in comercial hardware would hide the fact, rather 
than advertising it. Ardour is GPL, yet MB and Waves are using it 
comercially _and_ putting money back into it.
