IIRC, it is now available under all three.  The FSF does not consider the
Artistic license of perl to be GPL-compatible either, but perl is licensed
under both that and the GPL, so they're happy enough with it.

The Clarified Artistic license should be perfectly compatible with the
GPL, as far as I know.

Gold, n.: 
  A soft malleable metal relatively scarce in distribution.  It is mined
  deep in the earth by poor men who then give it to rich men who immediately
  bury it back in the earth in great prisons, although gold hasn't done
  anything to them.
