OK, I see that the ChangeLog file in qemu tracks authors on
per-feature/patch basis, but it should not be a problem (for qemu
community) to track changes per-file in the scope of this GL patch

May be we can convince him at least to put copyright notices in every
modified file in the form of "Copyright (C) 2007 Even Rouault et al
(see GL_AUTHORS for the complete list of contributors)"...  Is this
acceptable practice? :-)

This way the project can give credits to most contributors and prevent
copyright notices bloat the qemu community afraid of.
