I've recently read that this exception is actually not really  
necessary. The only thing that is required with the regular LGPL and  
static linking, is that the unlinked object files of the proprietary  
code are made available, so they can be linked against newly compiled  
versions of the LGPL part (if a user would want to do so).

Of course, it's a slight inconvenience for the software author that  
he has to make these object files available.
