Default OCaml "LGPLv2 with exceptions" - what should be in the License field?

Jason Tibbitts who has been kindly reviewing many of my packages raises
a question about the License field for a common license for OCaml.

The license starts with this preamble, and then continues with the
ordinary LGPLv2. Note that this license is more permissive than the
standard LGPL, so this is not a question about whether this is free
software or not.


Imo,
License: LPGLv2 with exceptions
is perfectly descriptive and valid. Folks will have to look at the
license file for details anyway. For example, see also qt4 packaging
that uses something similar.
