There's no harm in asking third-party library authors if they'll sell 
you a commercial licence, too.  This is what has enabled MySQL AB to 
release a popular database as free software.

 From the library vendor's point of view, the GPL is better than the 
LGPL for this purpose, because using the GPL requires more developers of 
non-free software to pay for commercial licences, thus providing more 
financial support for free software.
