I'd be very curious to know of any which are GPL, or especially LGPL,
incompatible.  Please provide specifics (especially if they're part of 
Debian) of such applications.  If there's specific licenses you know of
I'd like to know too since I might be able to check those pretty easily.
Given that libc is LGPL any software under a license incompatible with
that (which seems like it'd be pretty hard to have...) would probably
not be distributable under Debian.

	Thanks,
