Jane Street is indeed the major financial backer behind opam, and we are very 
thankful for that. Most open-source projects are possible thanks to sponsors, 
and my meaning wasn't that we work for free, which would be nonsense -- I 
didn't intend my wording to be misleading, so sorry if it was.

However, I don't see your point or how it relates to the issue at hand; also 
note that, leaving aside the consideration of LGPL vs BSD, something should be 
done to clarify the current situation anyway.
