Copyleft isn't a license.  It's a buzzword used by the GNU folks as a 
catch-all for licenses that meet their goals, which obviously includes 
the GPLs.  A quick look at the CVS repository for it shows that there is 
no license.txt file, and the few files that I checked have no copyright 
notice.  So I think it's clear that if any license applies, it will be 
the GPL as required by Drupal's upload policy.
