You meant to say that you hope that the license collisions are resolvable.

The current license is not LGPL compatible due to the "no making money" 
clause. The "docs" credit is also not LGPL compatible. However, the 
author also says:

which gives hope that if you ask him nicely, he will be willing to 
relicense the relevant parts as LGPL.

The "no commercial distribution" runs counter to item 1 of the open 
source definition (http://opensource.org/docs/definition.php). This 
means that this license is not an open source license. One has, of 
course, every justification for saying "so what", but I just wanted to 
mention this.
