No LGPL $3 says:

  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.)  Do not make any other change in
these notices.

but of course IANAL. I asked him off list for the reason behind the license change, he basically doesn't want that his code could end up under GPLv3. I personally don't care which license is used but i think whoever wrote most of the code should decide the license and even if it's legal to change the license it's not particularly nice (see the whole BSD/Linux Wireless driver ath5k issue).
