That phrase does not allow the user to change the licence, it merely
allows them to use terms from a newer one.  The license remains GPLv2
even if they do that.  However, it applies to *distribution* not
*reception* so if the company chooses v2.1 or v2.0 as their means, the
recipient cannot retroactively apply v3.0 to them.
