I don't see the issue with LO here. I mean - this would be a plugin, with a separate code-base, not to be directly integrated with LO. So why is it not ok to include code with a different license, as long as the license is compatible with the libvoikko license (as opposed to the LO license)? It might be that there are issues wrt the (lib)voikko license - but why this LO license discussion?
