my favoured solution too, if we can all agree that in the context of 
Odoo, the best way to interpret the license in terms of the meaning of 
derivative works is through dependencies then it could be set so that 
pretty much anything can depend on LGPL modules, GPL or AGPL can depend 
on GPL modules and only AGPL modules can depend on AGPL modules. This 
dependency rule can be implemented in the code and we could have a 
facility to automatically provide the source
of the AGPL bits.

Can anyone see a downside to this?

Alan.
