I don't believe achieving GPLv2 compatibility would be any more
difficult than for GPLv3. MPL 2.0 defines a category of 'Secondary
License' which includes the whole GPL family (including future
versions) other than pre-v2 versions of the GPL and pre-2.1 versions
of the LGPL, and has a provision aimed at achieving compatibility for
any Secondary License. Better explained by Luis though. :)
