Does it make sense to give your library a license any more permissive than 
OCaml runtime (LGPL with static linking) ? Applications using your library 
will have to use OCaml runtime anyway. The difference comes up only when the 
user changes your library. On the other hand, having LGPL license may 
encourage open-source advocates to contribute.
