Default cdparanoia III 10 license change

cdparanoia 10 is GPLv3 and LGPLv3. This is a change from 9.8.

Affected components:

atropine:~% rpm -q --provides cdparanoia-libs | while read i junk ; do
repoquery --qf="%{name}
" --whatrequires $i ; done | sort -u

Of these, bmpx and kdemultimedia-libs claim to be v2-only. My reading
of the compatibility matrix is that you can't link to a LGPLv3 library
from GPLv2 code. gstreamer-plugins-base only claims to be LGPL in the
License tag. It appears to be LGPLv2.1 accordig to the license text,
and my reading of the compat matrix is that linking to LGPLv3 from
LGPLv2 is okay. The cdparanoia source plugin is explicitly LGPLv2+.

<zodbot> akahl 'Alexander Kahl' <akahl@iconmobile.com>

<zodbot> than 'Than Ngo' <than@redhat.com>

If this is you, either your License tag is broken, or your package is
about to be.
