Other affected projects are Goffice (GPL-v2 only) and all those which
depend on it, namely Gnumeric, Abiword, Gnucash and GChemUtils (the last
also use OpenBabel, another GPL-v2 only library). Seems that all the
projects I'm involved in would be affected. Some can be relicensed, but
probably not all, just because some previous contributors seem to have
disappeared from the earth surface.
