You are mistaken. Though the linked program is a "derived work" of the LGPL code (*), Pradeep's code does not have to be released under the LGPL.  He just needs to make available whatever is necessary to re-link to a replacement of the LGPL code (e.g. another version of the same code, or a compatible equivalent), namely object code (.o, .jar, etc.) -- or even source code if he likes (not necessarily licensed under L/GPL).  Presumably those extended LGPL licenses you mention remove even that requirement.


(*) This is the FSF's position.  Others may disagree, but let's assume it's true.
