Idea 3: Simply change the string in version-etc.c to say GPLv3+. Programs
desiring to remain GPLv3+ (I doubt there will be many) can do so by using
the gnulib-tool --local-dir option and this file lib/version-etc.c.diff:

--- version-etc.c.v3    2007-07-10 12:09:04.000000000 +0200
+++ version-etc.c       2007-07-10 12:08:53.000000000 +0200
