I actually did include a copyright line for Oleg, even though none was
present on his code.

  ;;; Copyright (C) 2012 Free Software Foundation, Inc
  ;;; Copyright (C) 2009, 2011 Oleg Kiselyov

2009 and 2011 are the publication dates of Oleg's code, taken from

  <dd>The current version is 1.1, April 2011; original version: March 2009.</dd>

Please let me know if I have acted improperly, and if so, how I should
have handled this.
