That really just means that BSD3 code can be used in GPL code;  you still have to release your own code as GPL if you are including any GPL code.

If Pandoc is LGPL, then I think that means we are dealing with an entirely different situation, one in which the library user can choose whatever license he or she likes for his or her own code as long as any modifications to the LGPL'd library itself are released under the LGPL.
