I believe the situation is slightly more complex. From memory, the core part
of GNU TLS is LGPL (as are the underlying GNU libraries that TLS depends on)
but the OpenSSL compatibility layer is GPL.
So, if one uses TLS as a drop-in replacement for OpenSSL, the resulting code
is GPLed, but if wine links against the TLS's API then I believe LGPL
(instead of GPL) applies.
