Or rather, it's invalid to overwrite it; they claim a copyright in 2011.
They have no copyright on the collective work, so their claim does not
magically /change/ when we rerun the parser.  If someone touches these
on an older machine, their resulting file may (correctly) include some
copyright 2010, 2008 etc, and should not be edited; FSF's copyright
interest in the output does not change when it is run, only when they
published their work.
