In general, license changes are exactly the sort of thing we need to
prepare fore before the need actually arises.

That reasoning could be valid if we were dealing with computers only.
However, Emacs's users are humans.  If they form a habit, they will
oppose changing it.

I don't want there to be humans who insist that Emacs should stay
under GPL v3 so it can continue to be linked with Qt.

This problem could be resolved if Qt moves to GPL 3-or-later.
