I tend to take a pragmatic approach to these kinds of hotbutton topics.
Everyone needs security, regardless of OS of choice (or requirement).
However, it's David's code, if it needs a different license, then it's
up to him.  I'll ask once (if needed), respect the answer, and move on.

Thanksfully, from the looks of VLC, that won't be needed.

huh, neat.  I hadn't seen that.  Sure enough, LGPLv2.1.  I'm too lazy to
tease the link out of the app (VLC Streamer), but here's the company's
license page:


The GPL License listed in the app appears to be the LGPL, but doesn't
have the title block...

It might be worth a shot.  I suppose I should man up and get an apple
developer account.  :-/
