Yup. I just updated the Makefile in /, which also depends on the
security dir/year. Anyone know of any others? The only problem I see
with updating the year automatically is making sure that we properly
handle the case where nothing's been done that year. (E.g., there is no
news/2000 at the moment.) Probably not a big deal.
