So, just like had to be done with gpl.texi back when it was version 2, it
is necessary to s/unnumbered/appendixsec/ if including the GPLv3 in an
appendix of the manual?  It would be nicer if gpl-3.0.texi behaved like
fdl.texi, already prepared for inclusion in an appendix (or if texinfo
could support some other subsectioning keyword that works regardless of
whether the parent is a main body section or an appendix).

Also, gpl-2.0.texi adds a @cindex entry, but gpl-3.0.texi lacks it.  That
means the manual's index is one entry shorter by upgrading to the new
license; I'm wondering if that was intentional.
