ALL code under GPLv3 or able to be compatible with GPLv3 is compatible
with AGPLv3 because the GPLv3 has an explicit clause that says the code
can be used in an AGPLv3 project. But that's a one-directional
compatibility, so it requires that the overall combination be under AGPLv3.

In short, GPLv2+ and AGPLv3 (with or without the +) *are* compatible,
but the resulting combo will be AGPL overall.
