Can you be specific with how it's using the code?  Does it look like a 
copy of the code, is it importing that package, something else?

If the original author is handing us code and can ack's that this makes 
it ASL licensed, then we're fine.  If it's creating a dependency on 
[L]GPL code, then that's a problem.
