Also, one quick question: is the LGPL license a deliberate choice or is it
not important to you? Most projects in the Python scientific stack are BSD
licensed. So the LGPL choice makes it unlikely that a higher-level project
adopts it as a dependency. If you are the only copyright holder, you would
still have the possibility to license it under a more permissive license
such as BSD or MIT...

Why would LGPL be a problem in a dependency? That doesn't stop you making
your code BSD, and it's less restrictive license-wise than depending on MKL
or the windows C runtime...
