That's a problem only if you make modifications to Expat itself and
you want to redistribute the modified Expat but keep your
modifications closed-source -- an extremely rare situation, I'd guess.

Simply using an open-source library doesn't force your app to be
open-source as well; at worst, you might need to stick the Expat
source code in a zip file somewhere on your CD.

All the best,
