At the point that your application is used with a LGPLv3 library then it
would conceptually be 'upgraded' to GPLv3 at that time (so that the
GPLv2 clause preventing linking with LGPLv3 disappears).  This doesn't
mean that you have to change the licence of existing code -- you just
keep it "v2 or higher".

That's pretty much the view of most people, yes -- and certainly the
common practice.
