Hi Paolo,

This would probably be quite a different way of dealing with the data 
source. I suppose the idea would be to fetch all the points at once and 
store them in a kd-tree. Otherwise, refreshing the canvas would take 
ages to refresh.

The laslib [0,1] (from lastools) is LGPL.

But there is also liblas [2] which is available on Osgeo4W and has 
debian packages.
The code is on github [3], there is the licence info:
