At Struts and Tiles we removed them all, since the "author" of a file
is not a single person, and the copyright owner is the foundation
(meaning "all the people inside the foundation").
The author is contained inside the Subversion logs, both in direct
commits and contribution through a patch (where the name of the
contributor is contained inside the log description).
