Re: Adding missing copyright years

    What if 10 lines get changed in each year of (say) 2000-2005
    inclusive? Each year, the changes are too small to be substantial. But
    the net result is that the state of the code in 2005 differs
    substantially from that of 2000 (by 60 lines in this example). How is
    the copyright header supposed to deal with this kind of gradual,
    cumulative change?

I guess in that case we should list the years in which the change
accumulates to enough to be significant.
