Hi Steve and Alan,
I just reminding this issue - I have no response from anybody yet and it 
would really simplify our integration if I could handle copyright years 
inconsistencies this way - I see this issue in many jdk branches and 
these "each-branch-different" changes make each integration much more pain.

Thanks for any idea on this.
