My habit has been to include the whole old copyright if there's anything
at all in the new file that could be considered to be copy-and-paste from
an existing file.  Frequently it's a gray area.

Legally, I doubt anyone cares much.  Morally, I see it as paying due
respect to those who came before us in this project.
