Well, the above is my very personal opinion, and in practice, the dual
license can work for cases like this regardless of like and dislike.
So I hope we get LGPL-only at best but LGPL/BSD at least.

I cannot copy the code as it's still BSD-only.  At least, the
modification by you is needed in this regard.
Also, it'd be nice to update the code before merging, too.
