Well, in that case how is it possible, given a work issued under the GPLv2
or later, to issue a derivative work which is still under GPLv2 or later?
Clearly the derivator is not making a choice here.

You're a brave man! Go and break through the            John Cowan
lines, and remember while you're out there    
risking life and limb through shot and shell, 
we'll be in here thinking what a sucker you are!
