I'm sorry, parts of sections 0 and 4 are a bit unclear to me. I'm not
really able to answer this decisively. If you are concerned, it's
worth asking directly the FSF or FSF-Europe, they are usually very
helpful helping understand their licenses.

I any case the spirit of the LGPL is to allow usage by closed-source
applications, and that's how we mean it in Eigen, so regardless you
won't get any trouble from us.
