Better in one dimension, not in the multiple dimensions that we are concerned 
about.  For example, one of the major things that is an issue for GPLv2 is the 
patent protection.  Patent protection is important to us.  At least now we're 
compatible with GPL3, which is hopefully seen as a major step forward.

Yes, it is too bad we can't please all communities right now.
