cups_get_dests licensing

In order to solve GNOME bug 469210,

I needed to copy a bit of code from cups/dests.c:cups_get_dests
function. You can view my patch at

where the first 30 lines of cups_parse_lpoptions are more or less
copied verbatim.

However CUPS is licensed LGPL2 only, while Gtk+ is licensed LGPL2 or later. This means that I cannot use this code as is, unless the CUPS developers agree to relicense the code for Gtk+.

Hence my question: is this ok?
