Forget LGPL.

The LGPL Alternative

[...] an impenetrable maze of technological babble. They should not be 
in a general-purpose software license.


The LGPL concedes that the GPL is a better, more appropriate license,
and it allows any licensees to convert to the GPL at their option:

   You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General
   Public License


The LGPL, therefore, is an anomaly ... merely directs us back to the 
main event, the GPL license itself.
