What is GPL 2.1 in this context: (a) a theoretical future minor
revision of GPLv2, (b) a typo for LGPLv2.1, (c) a typo for GPLv2, (d)
something else? :)

I think addressing GPL compatibility in EPL 2.0 is a good idea, and
certainly worth doing, much as it was for MPL 2.0. The idea of an
optional approach seems okay.
