By the same argument, we should write 'LGPLv2+ or GPLv2+' instead of 'LGPLv2+'.
And 'LGPLv3+ or GPLv3+' instead of 'LGPLv3+'. But that looks like overkill.
The FSF couldn't make LGPLv3 compatible with GPLv2. But they will hopefully
make LGPLv4 compatible with GPLv4.

So, this patch may have been unnecessary. But it's reasonable anyway, since
it makes things a little bit clearer.
