    If you put the copy in gnulib under GPL, and you or anyone else make a
    change to this copy, then this change is under GPL, 
    which means I'd need to ask RMS each time I copy such a file from
    gnulib to GNU gettext.

This seems unnecessarily legalistic.  These common files have existed
under both licenses forever.  It is just administrative hassle.

Perhaps what we should do is keep the files that are mastered in gnulib
under lgpl.  And then keep a copy of all them under the gpl
(automatically updated of course).  Then gnulib users can pick whichever
one they need.
