I am concerned about non free software as everything should be.    I am
getting clarification on what LGPL means currently.  For example, if you
have a program that contains two parts, part A and part B with these

Part A - LPGL
Part B - GPL

Does there exist any non free software in the program?   If not, then why
doesnt the program just combine parts A and B and have one license that is
GPL?  I may not be understanding the GNU GPL licensing concepts correctly.

If you have concerns about how a developer designs his application, you have
the option of designing or refining your own.  Find an open source MUA and
tweak it to your hearts content.  If this is beyond your abilities, I guess
you have to live with what is available to you for **FREE**.
