   Since it's not a lot of effort, I prefer to strive for correctness.  But
   thanks for the tip :-)

It wasn't a `tip', it is what is recommended by the FSF lawyers.  From
(maint)Copyright Notices:

| To update the list of year numbers, add each year in which you have
| made nontrivial changes to the package.  (Here we assume you're using
| a publicly accessible revision control server, so that every revision
| installed is also immediately and automatically published.)  When you
| add the new year, it is not required to keep track of which files have
| seen significant changes in the new year and which have not.  It is
| recommended and simpler to add the new year to all files in the
| package, and be done with it for the rest of the year.
