+As an additional permission to the GNU Lesser General Public License version

+material from a header file that is part of the Library. You may distribute
+such object code under terms of your choice, provided that:

+ structure layouts, accessors, macros, inline functions and
+ templates; and
+ (iii) you comply with the terms of Section 6 of the GNU Lesser General
+ Public License version 2.1.
+Moreover, you may apply this exception to a modified version of the Library,
+provided that such modification does not involve copying material from the
+Library into the modified Library's header files unless such material is
+limited to (i) numerical parameters; (ii) data structure layouts;
+(iii) accessors; and (iv) small macros, templates and inline functions of
