I'm no expert either, but I found this page on the FSF:

They explain that you can go from GPL v2 to v3 when the program has the
"either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version"
phrase in the license. And PEL has that piece of text in every file, so
you are free to upgrade to GPL3!

I would definitely like to switch to GPL3. I guess there should be
nothing stopping us from doing so... Does anybody have any objection to
such a license change?
