says http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/library.html is the text
of the Library General Public License.

According to the link above, the Library GPL 2.0 has the same or
similar "loophole":
"3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. To do
this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the
ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
that version instead if you wish.)"
