I don't think we should update to the current year.

I've audited the change…  I noticed an inconsistent use of:

Copyright (c) 2010
Copyright 1992
Copyright (C) 2010

but that is pre-existing.  Also, I noticed a 90-2007, which should canonicalized to 1990-2007, but that is also pre-existing.

I did the analysis by case reduction so that like case classes reduce to generalized forms and then I audited all the forms of changes that appeared.  This lets me skip quickly the majority of changes and focus in on just the weirdest of the weird quickly and accurately without missing them in the noise of the common cases.

Look good.  I think we should put it in.  I didn't audit upstream or out of tree files.  Only the form of the change.
