Inkscape source license clarification

Maximilian Gaukler
Dear Dmitry,

./src/main-cmdlinexact.cpp and ./src/main-cmdlinexact.h are licensed as
GPL-v2.x-only. This is a problem because inkscape has implicitly
switched to GPLv3 by including widget code from GIMP. Is it okay to
relicense your code to "GPLv2 or any later version"? Otherwise I fear
that someone would have to rewrite or remove it.

Greetings from the Kiel Hackfest,
