Even with this minimal patch, that all the old branches no longer get
version updates means that the script need no longer support updating lots
of different files that used to contain the date - just gcc/gcc/version.c
and gcc/libstdc++-v3/include/bits/c++config.

(The 18-step release process documentation can also be (slightly)
simplified; it no longer need describe additional files that contained the
version number on pre-3.3 branches.)
