If nautilus is GPLv3+, that means we can't link it against GPLv2-
or LGPLv2-only libraries in the extensions. I'm also not opening
can of worms that is non-GPL-compatible dependencies of extensions
(such as proprietary, or patent-encumbered GStreamer plugins),
that's an existing problem.

What's the end goal for relicensing? What problems do the current
license cause that require a relicense?


Sounds like the license is already GPLv3+, since it uses GPLv3+
files, and the existing GPLv2+ notices are incorrect or misleading.

Were those licenses applied in error, or imported from projects that
were GPLv3 themselves?
