[Biojava-l] nasty stuff

We are currently LGPL. Does this cause you problems? We basicaly want
something that protects us from having the code appropreated by a third
party, but allows anybody to use it free of charge. I don't realy
understand licensing (does anybody else out there?), but LGPL seemed
closest. There should be a header on each file that states this license

I hope this helps.
