I'm guilty of this too.  At least when I've added years to the first
line I've wrapped it before 80 characters.  This line will often be
different (since the year, in classlib, and/or the name of copyright
owner, in general, can be different) so I don't really see how the
"looks the same" will ever apply.  Can I wrap this line?

(I seem to remember Cliff saying that there were plans to remove the
requirement that each file needed the boilerplate license.  The FAQ
still says it should be there though.)

Regards,
 Mark.
