Just a reminder that when we went through the copyright exercise
earlier in the year, it seemed to be the case that some of the images
included in Emacs from Gnome/GTK were under GPLv2 (no "or later").
Someone may wish to re-check these.

Seems to only affect (see READMEs) some files in: etc/images,
etc/images/gnus, etc/images/mail.

(I see many GNU projects have made new releases with the new license.
Will Emacs do this?)

  Is it really only version 2? If so, we may have to replace them in
  order to move Emacs to GPL version 3.
