   Is this true?  The GFDL certainly caught a lot of attention when it
   came out.  Also, if the "or any later version" clause isn't given,
   it seems there could be a problem blindly upgrading.

   At a quick glance, the situation doesn't look that different.

I agree, it is a license change, blindly upgradeing the license is
always wrong, it doesn't matter if `many developers' do not care.  It
is partially our job to see that they do care.
