Unless a great tragedy has happened, I believe Max is still alive.
Since we are still publishing (reprinting?) his work, his years of
copyright are still getting updated.

Admittedly, we've never been too careful about not updating copyright
years for those who are no longer alive.

People who have made nontrivial contributions (I don't think anyone
has, we haven't really touched Max's code in a significant way) can
add their copyright lines to this file.
