My take on this is that we couldn't link CPL code with, say, GPL code
together and distribute the resulting binary, but when the end user
performs that linking by setting LD_PRELOAD and running a binary, they
aren't distributing the result so there's no license violation. It's
all pretty much beyond me, though.
Any chance I can see the package in question?
