I've always made a habit of using the full copyright notice including
the UC Berkeley line, because hardly any new files that go into our tree
are really written totally from scratch --- there's usually a
significant amount of copy-and-paste of older code to begin with, and so
I think it's appropriate to acknowledge that the roots go way back.
Also, random variations in the format of the notice tend to fool Bruce's
copyright-year-updating script.
