  Sorry, that didn't made it into 1.0.5, I prefer to not play game
at such a late stage. The issues are identified, we plan to fix them
and that's only part of it. Let's get all this cleaned up properly
for 1.0.6 (or maybe call it 1.1.0 to raise the point about it).

  I still think that 1/ making general purpose libs like readline
as GPL is counter productive, and I opposed using it at the time
(still disabled in libxml2 xmllint --shell for this very reason)
2/ the fact that various (L)GPL licences are somehow incompatible
is rather nasty, and well we finally discovered the problem and
will act about it, we are making a good effort resolving the problem
we are showing good faith there
