Ummm - the license in the released version is the BSD3-Clause license.  It is an open source license (in fact it's one of the most permissive licenses) and it is both GPL and LGPL compatible.  I don't think there is a problem with using that code...

So I just sent the patch to John and he wasn't very crazy about the
whole direction as he reviewed my patch.  I made the arbitrary
decision to turn off the optimizer for the release version and the
optimizer for the development version instead of having a more
complicated grid of options giving us 4 configuration possibilities.
 I figured that most of us really don't care if the optimizer is on
or not.  We can't turn it on anyway on OS X and function evaluation
never shows up in our timings.  The patch works but he and Derek are
really leaning towards just going to the release version only...
 What are your thoughts?  Do you want the patch?  Unfortunately it's
large again because I had to include one more *.inc file for the
release version that we don't need for the development version.

I'd definitely prefer have the release-or-development-version option
for GPL compatibility.

Wait is this the issue?  Are you sure that the release version is not GPL compatible?

I don't care about the optimizer, though.  If someone else eventually
does then they can add a configure option for it.

Ok - this seems like a reasonable compromise.
I think we should get weigh-in from the other devs.
