For the reasons I mentioned earlier, I think it would be wise waiting
before performing the definitive move to GPLv3. 

Even if we provide a list of modules we use doesn't mean that we're not
going to need new module tomorrow, or that another library project
licensed under GPLv2 will need that module.

The modules (and their dependencies) we currently use in Prelude are: 

alloca arpa_inet d-type extensions fnmatch fseeko getline getlogin_r
gettext-h inet_ntop localcharset malloc malloca mempcpy mktime
netinet_in snprintf socklen ssize_t stdbool stdint stdio strcase strdup
string strnlen strpbrk sys_select sys_socket sys_stat sys_time time
time_r unistd vasnprintf wchar wctype
