$Id$ isn't much better than $Header$ --- the point is to avoid keywords
that downstream people's CVS repositories will want to replace.

Making the change will mean a big "cvs update" pass for everyone, but
no worse than what happens every time Bruce hits the copyright dates,
for example.  It's a one-line change in every file AFAICS.

I'd recommend giving committers a day or two's notice of the edit, same
as Bruce typically does for pgindent runs, but there's no reason to
consider it any worse than that.
