write 'LGPLv3+ or GPLv2+' instead of 'LGPLv3+ or GPLv2'

When I started to use the dual license 'LGPLv3+ or GPLv2', I thought that
code under this license could be distributed under GPLv2+. But there's a
mistake here: We know that code under LGPLv3 can be distributed under GPLv3.
But when there will be an LGPLv4 and a GPLv4, we don't know whether code
under LGPLv4 can be distributed under GPLv4. We cannot look into the future.

Therefore better write 'LGPLv3+ or GPLv2+'. This is what was intended.
