We require papers for all "non-tiny" changes that are installed in CVS.

In this case, the file builds on source "owned by FSF", but although
that means that the GPL applies to the changed file, that doesn't make
FSF "owner" of any work derived from that source.

So if the file has been changed "outside" FSF, we require papers!
