I looked back through cvs log - the only change of mine in that file
prior to revision 1.23, which is when it was relabeled copyright FSF,
date: 2000/06/09 18:55:36; author: zack; state: Exp; lines: +23 -7
* cp-demangle.c (demangle_operator_name): Add spaces before
names beginning with a letter: delete, delete, new, new,
(demangle_special_name): Handle TF <type> and TJ <type>.
The "add spaces before" bit is trivial, the obvious way to fix a bug
(printing of _Znwj as "operatornew(unsigned int)"). The TF/TJ special
name bit is bigger and not quite so trivial, but I would still call it
small enough not to worry about.
I note that the change log for revision 1.23 is
date: 2000/09/08 17:50:54; author: samuel; state: Exp; lines: +3 -1
* cp-demangle.c: Fix copyright banner.
which suggests that the initial copyright notice was a simple error
and it was intended to be assigned to the FSF from the beginning.
