We are sure we don't want 4.9.0 to be released this year ;)

But, all the other files in gcc/ are now someyear-2013, new files added
are also 2013, if you make your files someyear-2011 or similar, then I think
the scripts won't easily adjust it to someyear-2014 when we run the script
early in January 2014.
