"superceded" is not the same as "is textually and therefore legally the
same".  So I would recommend that you run wdiff.  If they just changed
the name of the license, then yes it's the same.  If there are changes
in terms, then we should add it separately.  (I'm assuming you have an
actual package that references the Library GPL 2.0, and that you've
already checked with upstream that this isn't just confusion and they
don't mean regular LGPL.)
