Making the glue library is harder than i thought. Ok, the C code is ready, but i need to implement an interface description language that takes IDL files and exports C code that uses the glue library, H files for using the C code, C code for the XSeal itself, etc, etc.

To remind you: we need this glue library because XSeal as GPL must be linked statically or dynamically with GPL-conformant libraries ONLY.

The solutions are two: make this glue library OR change the license to LGPL. The XSeal source code (remind: this is based on my The Force source code and contains only my work) copyrighted to me, so i can do that if i want, at this moment.

However, making the glue library is hard and time consuming just for making a wormhole.

I'm wondering what your thoughts are around this topic.

Note also that the first version of XSeal will be released after a long time, since current code doesn't even run (i've managed to boot in DOS and make it see my harddisk). Making the glue library extends this time...

I would say, go with the LGPL, but you get the "code that uses the library" clase that can be a blessing and a pain at the same time.
