Thanks for all the info so far.

Is there any more information about the conflicting parts in the T&C? Is 
it a about using Google inside lgpl code? Or something about the 
techniques used? Whats the difference to e.g. the "here" maps who also 
need an registered api key, basically in the same way as with an 
registered google maps key.
