ranges can be ok in copyright lines

As long as information is not lost, it is now ok to use ranges in copyright years.  Specifically: 1) every year in the range, inclusive, really must be a ``copyrightable'' year that would be listed individually; and 2) you make an explicit statement in a @file{README} file about this usage.
