It depends whether your lawyer earns more money by telling you it's
compatible or by telling you it isn't. It all depends on how they choose to
interpret words like "linking".

I am continuously amazed by the fact that people are prepared to pay lawyers
large amounts of money to go through the fine print of these incredibly
generous licenses - and then ask for changes! (Once or twice I've responded
by saying I was prepared to consider making changes in return for money, and
you can guess what the reaction was.)
