The copyright notice in my installed version of Lilypond (2.12 from the
package in Ubuntu Karmic) says 'GPLv2 or (at your option) any later
version'.  Has there been a change of policy on this ... ?  (... and
isn't there some kind of preference/pressure for GNU projects to either
upgrade to GPLv3 or at least have licensing compatible with it?)

Well, the English norm is to alternate, so,

   'Today I went to see the captain.  "Hello, Mrs Jones," he said,
   "You'll never guess what the First Mate said to me: 'Captain, it's
   raining herring!'"'

(I don't know what weird part of my head that phrase came from, but ... :-P)
