AFAIK this shall allow contributors to work at the KDE codebase 
without much thinking about license problems. For example, 
mixing (or even linking) GPL v2-only with GPL v3-only code 
guides to an application that you cannot legally distribute.
Hence, having all code compatible with GPL v2 provides a 
common compatibility level for all our 
sources/applications/libraries.

Greetings,
Andreas
