Sorry, I agree that LGPL is usable. I meant by the original poster's 
criteria (or his company's lawyer's criteria). Though I really can't 
figure out what the MPL offers that the LGPL does not, for a library 
that will be dynamically linked.

The reason I am asking is that I feel it would be nice if Cairo had a 
better integrated text formatting but it seems unlikely it could be done 
without using HarfBuzz.
