I don't see a problem with "v2 or later". Everybody who doesn't like to
use GPLv3 (when it's released) can just chose to use v2. That's
Ifîwe don't use "v2 or later" for the major parts _now_, but decide (at
some point in the future) to convert to "v3 or later" we'll have to go
through all of this relicensing stuff again...

Wait, the actual license is the GPL? It doesn't say so anywhere, so that
definately needs to be clarified. As I understood things until now, was
that the LANL-text is in itself a license, namely a BSD-ish one.
Would LANL agree to relicense their code to GPL, and/or remove the
BSD-ish text? It's really confusing...
