Better be quick :)

It was a deliberate decision. I found a bunch of old copyright
dates that were not updated to 2002 and thought that having a single
2000-2003 throughout the code base would be easier to find and update
when 2004 rolls around.

If this is an issue, I can go back and fix these dates.

Also, what happens when people copy a file to create a new file that
includes an old 2000-2003 copyright even through the file is brand
new? Does have the old date in there really matter from a legal
point of view?

Best,
Blair
