I checked with the TOSL authors from Trusster, and here is their reply:

Yes, our license is the SleepyCat one...

Nope. Any project a customer does is totally owned by them in whatever
license they want.

    I see that in the examples you "include" the RTL sources, but, does
    that involve compilation between TOSL framework code and RTL LGPLV2+


The idea behind TOSL was to encourage others to use it, but not
require that their work be in open source.

=== END ===

So, if I ship examples that use GPLv2+ or LGPLv2+, can I use the
following in License at teal.spec?

  License:     TOSL and (GPLv2+ and LGPLv2+)

Do let me know your views. Thanks!
