GNU Lesser General Public License is a name of the license that was
introduced for LGPL2.1, before that (e.g. LGPL2) it was called
GNU Library General Public License.  I think in License: we aren't supposed
to differentiate between LGPL2 and LGPL2.1, so both licenses
are to be tagged with LGPLv2 resp. LGPLv2+, depending on if they allow
any later version or not.
