I didn't say that using the LGPL would give you the same possibilities as BSD. Sorry for the answer that only half fitted the question, in context of iOS and App Store, you are right.

If the author wants to use a GPL license, its his decision. But using a viral license in a support library is harmful in any case, as it destroys all ability to use it in a program that incorporates other pieces of code that might not be compatible with the GPL.
