Alan asked a what-if question, so we are safely within
hypothetical-land. Based on some stuff that I read on
legal-discuss (but won't bother to look up now), I believe
that the FSF believes that GPL 2.0 is incompatible
with AL 2.0, while some ASFers believe that the FSF is
in error on this point.

cheers,
