Well, changing the copyright year in a file that doesn't contain any
"real" changes is, strictly speaking, a lie. The "noise in the patch"
consists of one changed line changed file per year... and it really
shouldn't be that hard to write a hook that checks the copyright date.

Not that I have time to write such a hook, of course... :(
