Awesome, thanks.
The inevitable, pointless, minor quibble: can it stop refilling
copyright notices?
Because frankly I think I had them all adjusted nicely by hand, then last
year a bunch of them got refilled (in the intervening period I've
been putting them back when I notice). I'm talking about things being
changed from something like

;; Copyright (C) 1993-1994, 1998-1999, 2001-2012
;;   Free Software Foundation, Inc.


;; Copyright (C) 1993-1994, 1998-1999, 2001-2013 Free Software
;; Foundation, Inc.

Feel free to ignore this, which is obviously what I should do! :)

That's TRT IMO.
