I believe we can't use it. MPL is category b and we can use external
libs for example and can link against it. But we can't use patches on
Apache licensed code that are under MPL only. We can only accept ALv2
patches on this code. Please correct me if I am wrong. This is the crux
with this license conglomerate that makes no sense at all. And I believe
many people don't get the details what it really means.

I personally still believe that the way how LO handle this is wrong but
I am no lawyer. I am happy that I work on a clean code base without this
problems. Makes my life much easier ;-)
