[development] Modules that integrate non-GPL PHP apps violate the GPL.

Can I again suggest that the most pragmatic change would be to license
core under "GPL 2.0 or any later version".    Moving to only 3.0 would
be a mistake, since there are contrib modules and other open source
projects that may stay as GPL 2.0 only.
