Re: SAX2 ... missing features?

No; it's more like what people think LGPL is, but it really isn't.  If
you distribute a work using an LGPL'ed library, you have to distribute
it in linkable form so that someone can upgrade the library.  (If
if it's a shared library/DLL, of course, that's what you do anyway.)

It's simply an exception to the GPL.  A programmer can publish something
under the GPL, and add his own terms that let you, the recipient, do
things the GPL would normally forbid.  Exactly what is allowed depends
on the details.
