Well, yes, eventually we will switch the various differently-licensed
parts of Libtool to version 3 or later of the GPL, LGPL, including the
exception clauses (see the file HACKING in the CVS tree about the
individual licensing rules).  We are still waiting for the lawyers to
reformulate the exception clauses in the way that GPLv3 specifies
additions to happen to that license.  But I strongly expect 2.2 to be
released before that happens.
