As far as I understand, mixing code licensed under GPLv3 with code
licensed under "GPLv2 or later" (which is what the GPL'ed code in gnulib
is today, I believe) should be fine, and results in that the GPLv3
applies to all of the code.

Thus, some projects may need to include a copy of both licenses, until
or unless all GPLv2+ is changed into GPLv3.
