I'm not quite up-to-speed with the problems here: is the problem that we have some GPLv2-only parts and some GPLv3-only parts? I'm not sure that that is a new problem, is it?
Wireshark binaries should be under a "GPLv2 or newer" license, not a
"GPLv2" license.
Ok, so how does that tie in with COPYING saying "Wireshark is 
distributed under the GNU GPLv2?"  I suppose that's true, but the 
implication is that it therefore *cannot* be distributed under GPLv3. 
It would be nice if this were clearer IMHO.
