Wasn't my intent.  Probably not, as it would make the "libre" version
pretty pointless if you couldn't get libre source for all the pieces.

It would be ok if the "proprietary" library was under the same terms
as I'm pushing.  With coordinated licensing/shared marketing, so
purchasers would get source for all pieces at once, and all pieces
would go libre at once.
