Good summary; Additionally, it has been the FSF that has maintained
that the GPLv2 is incompatible with the Apache License ver 2.0 (but
not ver 1.x) in both directions, i.e. ALv2 works can not be included
into GPLv2 works. IIRC, it was some obscure patent submarining and
litigation scenario that could render the downstream user without the
rights FSF is trying to protect.
