Well, a module licensed under LGPL allows a proprietary module to be
built on top of it. It gives these proprietary modules a distinct
competitive advantage over their open source dependencies and lowers the
return on investment in these open source contributions, which is why I
strongly prefer the AGPL for OCA modules.
