I had a suspicion, but this is exactly the sort of thing that I'd like to
have written down somewhere.  (For example, I went and documented them
since I wasn't sure whether it was a good thing to do or not, and I
figured that while I was using the new copyright format, I should give it
a fair shake and try using it literally as written, and there's nothing in
it saying to skip those files.)
