"Damn the license, full speed ahead!"

This is from the GNU gettext NEWS file:

> Version 0.10.40 - September 2001
>
> * The libintl library is now covered by the GNU LGPL. The tools are still
> covered by the GNU GPL.

That means Subversion can use the stock gettext for i18n and l10n.

Oh goody, no more ripping the libintl implementation out of glibc! :-)

(P.S.: I'm told that the reason for changing the libintl licence was
that the Gnome project threatened to develop its own gettext library if
FSF didn't cease and desist. Can't say what the real story behind this
is, though.)
