All the years are of course still in the source code, but I didn't
think it'd be necessary to list them all here, and it tends to clutter
up the help screen. This is just an auto-generated summary page, it
isn't clear to me that the copyright information is necessary here at
all.  Is it?  I went to the Emacs splash page for inspiration; that
only puts up one year after the copyright.
