Just to make sure this is legal... the copyright year *cannot* change
unless something has changed (besides the copyright notice).

You can't take every file and just s/2004/2005/g, for example.  You
can update the copyright if some change was actually made in the file.

It's conceivable, and in fact very likely, that some of the files
will still be copyright 2004 or earlier in this next release.
