Strictly speaking, this is not possible. Although IANAL, this code is 
LGPL, so he can't revoke permission for this version of the code. He can 
ask to not use it, and this wish can be granted. You still should be 
allowed to pick it up. Next question is then, if a modified version will 
be picked up (still respecting the author's wish)? Or how much 
modifications are needed? Geez, such things are never trivial :(
