No one is talking about relicensing.  BSD, MIT, Tcl, LGPL, etc. are  
compatible with GPLv3, that means you can include code with those  
licenses into a GPLv3 project and that is allowed.  Then the whole  
project is GPLv3.

If you are only worried about snippets of code, then you only have to  
worry about what the copyright and license of the code you take.
