Again, the COPYING they put there explicitly says "If the Program does not 
specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever 
published by the Free Software Foundation."

Guessing that they actually meant v2 or something else when the files they 
actually put in the distribution themselves _explicitly say otherwise_, and 
labeling them according to our guess without asking for clarification would 
be pretty damn arrogant, and plain wrong.
