Hi all,

Having studied the FSF licenses and their restrictions, I think
it would be reasonable to re-license GTK+ under the LGPLv3
(or later) + GPLv2 linking exception (or, alternatively, simply
multi-license it under LGPLv3 / GPLv2).

But you can't do that. Gtk is *LGPL*-2, so you can't
make it GPL-2 (unless you convince all contributors,
including aliens and dead). For a linking exception,
you'd need a lawyer to say if it's possible.
