After all I do not care about the copyright year in the header of source
files. We had this change last year, so I proposed the same for this year.

But I think we should update the copyright your at places where it is visible
to users. This is the information displayed with `openvpn --version` and the
repository's README file. Are you willing to accept a patch for these? Are
there more places this makes sense?
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
