From: http://gplv3.fsf.org/wiki/index.php/GNU_General_Public_License_version_2

"Works under the GPLv2 are only compatible with the GPLv3 if they are  
upgraded manually by the copyright holder(s), or if the work was  
originally licensed in the manner section 9 of the GPLv2 described:

If the Program specifies a version number of this License which  
applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of  
following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any  
later version published by the Free Software Foundation."

Is this the case for WordPress?
