I'm not certain where to best ask this question.  Please let me know
if it would be better addressed elsewhere.

At the Apache Software Foundation we have an incubating project (named
Toree[1]) that has a dependency on Zeromq.  LGPL is problematic for
us[2], probably for the same reasons that you are considering moving
to MPL[3].

What is the status and plans of your move to MPLv2?
