[cosmo-dev] Copyright dates

Cosmo r6765 updated the copyright date on apparently all files in
Cosmo to include the year 2008.
I thought I should mention that technically, this is not proper and
not legally valid. The copyright dates that are in effect depend on
the last date a file has been changed. You can't update a copyright
date just by labeling it as such (oh my, wouldn't the record companies
and Disney be pleased if that were the case).
It is possible to script the update of copyright updates, but you must
change based on the actual lastmod of the file. Bear did this for the
Chandler tree at one point, I'm pretty sure; perhaps he has some code
he can share.
I recommend reverting r6765, assuming my reading of what actually got
changed is correct. Apologies if this has already been done and the
big list of the files is really just those that have been touched this
