I am mostly agnostic, given that much of the code is GPLv2.
What matters more than the license, is the mechanism by which I
contribute. LedgerSMB had severe problems accepting code as a result of
licensing decisions (version n+1 not GPL).

Who is it is for? Do they care?
I have no objection to having the code. BSD 2-clause is entirely
compatible with GPLv2, and can be relicensed as GPLv2.
