I totally agree. 

My main thinking behind it was to make updating the comment headers easier
via a script. In reality most of the copyright information is outdated in
our files as a lot more people have worked on them than most of the
copyright statements indicate.

I will look into this more at a later date once Geeklog 2.1.0 is released
and I have a bit of time.

I'm not a big fan of the idea of copyright assignment. One being that, for a
small and loosely organised group such as Geeklog, it erects additional
hurdles for participation. We should make it easier for people to
contribute, not harder.

Besides, for this to work, we would have to get the approval of all past
contributors, would we not?
