I don't even think there should be any such case,
as the real point in having LGPL is, supposedly, to
support *interfacing*, so using headers (source-code
*interfaces*) and linking to stuff (binding binary
*interfaces*) should be just fine under LGPL (or a
better LGPL? IGPL? dunno the details that deep, sorry).
