How applying the GPL or the LGPL licenses to different parts of a project at 
the same time may become a problem?  What a mess!

I don't think that granting more rights to the licensees would be a problem 
with the GPL. That is exactly what the GNU Classpath exception does, and this 
package is available on both Fedora and Debian:

And a similar exception applies to the Qt LGPL license:

Some people also think that restrictions based on moral rights may also be 
applicable to software licenses, when the author wants to prevent any usage 
"prejudicial to his honor or reputation", as stated by Berne Convention 6 bis, 
because this treaty is the basis of the international Copyright laws, and 
software licenses are based on Copyright. 


PD. Happy new year!
