As far as I understand this is a problem: while most Rockbox code and
also the Theme Editor is GPLv2+ that imported code is LGPL3. Unless
that code does allow using it under the terms of the LGPLv2 (or
LGPLv2.1) it is incompatible with the Rockbox license according to
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#AllCompatibility (unless we
switch to GPLv3 for at least the Theme Editor).

Is the imported code from http://qtfindreplace.sourceforge.net/ ? If
yes it's definitely (and unfortunately) LGPLv3. Please correct me if
I'm wrong on this topic.
