Note that BSD license does not allow someone else to claim the code is 
theirs. An attribution is still required. However, anyone using the 
source under BSD can link it any way they want, without undue burden, 
which is different from LGPL. Also, LGPL might be a real problem on 
closed platforms, like game consoles; BSD is not a problem in those
