[Mono-dev] ByteFX driver -> Connector/Net

AFAIK, it's just a licensing issue: GPL for a library may muddle
things with our mostly X11/MIT library licensing. We do carry some
LGPL libs, but that is reasonable, as LGPL limits its effects to the
library itself, including a GPL one into the package would make people
think they may be constrained to GPL when using Mono to develop apps,
what is not the case.

Hope it helps,

As I'm currently working a lot with Java and even fixing Java VMs
(JamVM/Kaffe) and GNU Classpath code, I think I may partly borrow the
title (Javaman) from my friend Bruno Souza and become the
MonoNJavaMan. Yeah, I may currently be crazier than usual...
