Individual source files may be being updated only on change, but we
still need to bump the global license every year.

Regarding the massive duplication, does anyone see any problems with:

* Deleting subversion/LICENSE - it is redundant with COPYING.

* Making www/project_license.html simply link to www/license-1.html.

* Maybe making COPYING just refer to www/license-1.html ?
