What does that mean?  In .NET, you add a reference to the Npgsql dll,
and then add "Using Npgsql;" to the top of the class you want to use
Npgsql in.  So if you wrote something like this it would have to go
under the LGPL?:

Using Npgsql;
namespace foo{
class foobar
   String connectionString = "";
   NpgsqlConnection conn = new NpgsqlConnection(connectionString);
